A child who was injured in the Wisconsin Christmas-parade crash on Sunday has died, bringing the death toll to six people, the Waukesha County assistant district attorney said.
At least 62 people were injured after the driver of a red SUV plowed through the crowd at a Christmas parade in Waukesha on Sunday, a criminal complaint said.
Authorities identified other victims on Monday as Virginia Sorenson, 79; LeAnna Owen, 71; Tamara Durand, 52; Jane Kulich, 52; and Wilhelm Hospel, 81.
The child was not immediately identified by authorities. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the child who died was Jackson Sparks, an 8-year-old boy who was marching in the parade with his baseball team. His death was announced on a GoFundMe page and confirmed by his team and church.
Jackson and his 12-year-old brother, Tucker, were both struck by the SUV and hospitalized.
Darrell E. Brooks appeared for a preliminary hearing at the Waukesha County Courthouse on Tuesday in connection with the crash. He was charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide. Prosecutors said an additional charge would be filed in light of the child's death.
Of those who were hospitalized, more than a dozen were children, including three sets of siblings, Insider previously reported.
