Car Plows Into Marching Band During Mardi Gras Parade

Blue Line Media ImageTwelve members of the Gulf Shores High School marching band were injured, four of them critically, when a car plowed into the band at a Mardi Gras parade Tuesday in Gulf Shores, Alabama today. The car was driven by a 73-year-old man who hit the band sending the crowd into a panic.

"Every indication is that it was a tragic accident by an elderly man," Gulf Shores Police Chief Ed Delmore said.

There was no indication that drugs or alcohol were involved. The parade has been cancelled until further notice.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Gulf Shores High School band and all those who were injured. 

This is a developing story and we will keep you updated throughout the day.
