An unmanned aerial drone crashed into spectators in the stands at a public event in Virginia. The accident happened at the Virginia Motorsports Park during the Great Bull Run. Although drone technology is more commonly known for its air assaults, this one was being used by a television station to capture video of the event. The drone which is powered by several propellers to keep it afloat came down abruptly and plummeted into the crowd. 'It just hit a dude in the face. That was crazy,' commented the announcer covering the event. Incredibly, five people suffered only minor injuries as the machine appeared to lose height and overall control without warning. They were treated by medics at the event, and nobody was taken to hospital. The bull run was billed as a daylong festival featuring bands, drinking, games and a tomato fight. The highlight was to be four scheduled bull runs in which participants were to try to elude or outrun 24 bulls. The drone was particularly menacing as it hovered above the crowd, measuring about four feet in diameter and with numerous spider-like appendages. Then, it suddenly dipped and fell into the midst of about a dozen spectators. Some rushed toward the place where the machine crash-landed. Another picked it up and put it aside. Video
