Eleven people were injured in a “major collision” on Friday night in Austin, Texas, involving pedestrians and two cars, one of which knocked down a food truck, authorities said.

The Austin-Travis County Ambulance Service tweeted that two victims received life-threatening injuries. Seven more received non-life-threatening injuries that require medical examination. The other two did not need hospitalization.

The collision took place in a popular area near downtown Austin, where several carts of groceries often stand.

Jennifer Dunn, an employee of a nearby restaurant, told the Associated Press that a group of 25 people had just gone for ice cream in a food truck a few feet away when restaurant visitors heard a loud sound.

Dan said several members of the group then ran back, injured, and asked for help. Dan said she and others ran to the scene where several people, including drivers, were badly injured.

“We work in the restaurant industry, so we used to help,” Dan said. “I’ve been doing this for a long time (time), so the servers are there and we just wanted to help.”

Austin is the capital of Texas, where the flagship campus of the University of Texas is located.
