LOS ANGELES (AP) -- An off-road truck plowed into a crowd and scattered ''bodies everywhere'' moments after sailing off a jump at a California race, killing eight people and injuring 12 others, authorities and witnesses said.
The crash came shortly after the start of the California 200, a Saturday evening race in the Mojave Desert, said San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Bachman.
Bachman said eight people died and 12 were injured, several of them seriously. Seven ambulances and 10 emergency aircraft responded to the scene. Most of the injured were airlifted from the area to Loma Linda University Medical Center or St. Mary's Medical Center.
