    MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) - Eight people were killed and 10 others were injured after a car drove into a group of people in the Colombian town of Guaduas, located in the central department of Cundinamarca, local media reported.

    The Colombian newspaper El Tiempo reported late on Wednesday that town residents had gathered in the road after two vehicles carrying ice cream and yogurt overturned there earlier in the day.

    The T-6A Texan II is a single-engine, two-seat primary trainer designed to train Joint Primary Pilot Training, or JPPT, students in basic flying skills common to U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots. The trainer is phasing out the aging T-37 fleet throughout Air Education and Training Command.

    The car reportedly rammed into the group of people, who were eagerly grabbing treats which had spilled following the crash.

    According to the authorities' preliminary data, cited by the outlet, the vehicle's brakes went out, so the driver did not manage to stop the car before it hit the crowd.
