The vehicle in which “Falconetti” and his wife were driving broke into the San Miguel de Deiro festival grounds at 11.25 p.m. on Sunday and crashed into the marquee, running over the crowd.

During the nearly twenty meters that the car traveled inside the structure, it ran over up to 18 victims, several of whom had to be rescued to get out from under the vehicle.
