CHIHUAHUA, MEXICO – Mexican authorities are searching for answers after a monster truck crash that killed eight people — including four children — and injured dozens more.

Take a look at this video of the accident.

You can see the massive red truck run over a hurdle then plow right into a crowd of people in the stands.

Nearly 30 people were taken to the hospital and a dozen more remain in critical condition.

One official says it’s possible the truck driver was drinking before the crash.

He also says blood tests have been done and prosecutors will determine who was responsible.

The event was suspended after the incident, officials say.
