Crash: 7 Victims & Perpetrator Dead, 10 Wounded at Queen's Day 2009
something happens. An accident? :ohmy:

Edit Marengo:
Please do NOT post graphic images/clips in this thread. I have not seen anything on Dutch tv yet, so I am shocked that they are showing this in Germany/elsewhere. We will try to remove the links as soon as possible. Please notify us as soon as possible if we graphic images have slipped through!

Accident!!Awfull,a man drove his car thriough the crowds and people got severely hurt while the Royal Family drove by.They all witnessed the accident and were in shock.

It was on purpose,no one can drive that distance in an area closed to traffic that long,the *******!!!
Oh my god,oh my god

JessRulz 04-30-2009 05:56 AM

What's happened? Is it serious?

Marengo 04-30-2009 05:57 AM

A car drove through the audience, and crashed with high speed to the 'needle' in front the palace. Some people are severly wounded and maybe dead. The driver is still alive, it seems to be done on purpose.

Oh my devastating :nonono: Hopefully all those injured pull through, and the guy has the book thrown at him. On purpose? WTH?!

Paty 04-30-2009 06:00 AM

OH my GOD, What a horrible news. I hope everybody is save!

bettina 04-30-2009 06:01 AM

This is crazy, i'm in total shock. He just drove through the crowd.The car already looked damaged before he crashed. The royal bus just passed but Maxima saw it happening and reacted very shocked. Just heard that 14 people got hurt but there can be more and it's not sure how bad.

lucien 04-30-2009 06:06 AM

14 severely wounded ,three of them were reanimated.

The parade has been cancelled,the Royal Family is in shock as they watched it happen.
The Family is at Het Loo Palace and it is not clear yet what will happen next,if anything at all.

What a pitty,all those thousands of people that have worked to make this all happen what should be a wonderfull day,and now this.

My heart and thoughts go out to the wounded.

But one thing is for sure,IT WAS ON PURPOSE,no-one could possibly get within that area
as everything was tightly secured,sealed off so to speak due to the parade and the RF.
To awfull for words.

Very serieus Jess. If the car was less then half a minute earlier it would have hit the bus of the Royal family.

JessRulz 04-30-2009 06:12 AM


That was probably the idiot's intention :angry::angry: All those poor people, who were injured, and those who witnessed the accident - how traumatic it must be for everyone there.

Monna 04-30-2009 06:15 AM

I can`t believe it :ohmy:. How can anybody act in such a cruel way? Poor innocent people. Hope that they all will recover. It`s so shocking.

Princess Robijn 04-30-2009 06:16 AM

I agree. I cannot believe that idiot!!

What kind of crazy idiot can someone be.

Marengo 04-30-2009 06:17 AM

14 people are injured, 3 of them are reanimated on the street still.

The driver might have intended to hit the royal bus, which was just turning too.

The royals were obviously shocked, several princesses started crying.

The historical parade is cancelled. The NOS just announced that the rest of the festivities will be cancelled.

bettina 04-30-2009 06:18 AM

All festivities for the rest of the day are cancelled.
Too bad for everyone but the only decision to make at this moment.

lucien 04-30-2009 06:18 AM

Everything is cancelled.Understandeble in light of events,but what a god awfull thing to happen.I am just in shock.

My heart and thoughts are with the wounded and their loved ones now.To incredible to comprehend.

HM conveyed her sorrow with the wounded and their loved ones.

There will be a press conference at 15.45PM.

Princess Robijn 04-30-2009 06:19 AM

The other parts of Koninginnedag 2009 have been cancelled!

JessRulz 04-30-2009 06:21 AM

Rightly so, it would be severly insensitive to continue with the rest of the day. I wouldn't think any of the RF would continue anyway. When you say reanimated, do you mean some of the injured were resuscitated?

This article from NOS says that someone is still under the car and that the fire department is trying to get them out. Terrible, just terrible.

susan alicia 04-30-2009 06:33 AM

we do not know the details yet about the wounded, the driver is in an ambulance I wonder what, why etc. completely awful

emilieweber2004 04-30-2009 06:33 AM

Which princesses were close to the accident? And like how close were they? I hope all the wounded are ok now.

carlota 04-30-2009 06:35 AM

this is horrible news. how can someone be so crazy to hurt so many people? i seem to have the idea of queensday being a very popular festivity in holland and every year we get so many pictures of people having fun. it's such a shock that someone would do something like this in an event which is supposed to be something to have fun and enjoy.

i hope we get more news soon and that the people who are hurt are safe. i wish the same for the royal family, it's obviously something that was directed to them.

it's understandable that everything got cancelled.
