6 injured when van crashes into bleachers


RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- Six people were hurt when a wayward minivan crashed into some bleachers at a softball game in Racine.

Police say the van was driven by a boy, 16, who accelerated from a parking spot behind the baseball diamond's home plate Monday night about 8 p.m. at Island Park.

Racine Police Sgt. John Scharpling said Tuesday the six suffered minor injuries. Four were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Marshlli Hamilton was playing in the softball game when she saw the van careen into the bleachers. Hamilton says she's never been so frightened because the players' children were sitting in the bleachers. Police did not know how many of the injured are children.
