A car meet-up to remember a lad who had died in a crash turned to horror when an out-of-control vehicle flew through the air and smashed into mourners.

Five people were raced to medics, with one left fighting for their life in hospital and four others seriously injured.

The Lincoln event was held in honour of Dad of two Damian Buckle, 36, who was previously crushed on his motorbike by a van on the A46.

It was attended by a large crowd with plenty of high-power sports cars, reports The Sun.

As the chaos unfolded, onlookers dived for cover as one vehicle hurtled past them before smacking a parked car and spinning off the road, all captured in a horrifying Snapchat video.

An eyewitness, Shakira Hensby, told how she was smacked in the head by a flying wing mirror.

She posted: "What a night tonight has been, leaving the majority of people shook up and hurt in some way.

"It all happened so slow – but so fast. I'll probably have a nice bruise on my face from getting hit with a wing mirror – but I'd rather that than anything else.

"My thoughts go out to everyone involved. Maybe people will learn to stop driving like absolute idiots as sadly this is the outcome."

Another witness wrote: "Oh this is horrific I hope everyone involved are not seriously injured."

Top cops said the incident was resource-intensive and several emergency services had to race to the scene with the highest priority.

Police, ambulances, fire crews, medic helicopters, and even the Coast Guard helicopter all attended.

Detective Superintendent Peter Grayson added: “This is a very serious collision with profound physical consequences for those injured.

"The event had a large crowd, and we would like to speak to anyone who has not yet been spoken to as part of our investigations.

"We would also like to hear from anyone who was in the area that evening, and witnessed the incident, the gathering, or has dashcam or mobile phone footage of the incident itself.

“We have been on scene since just after 10.15pm last night, and will remain in the area during today as we carry out our initial enquiries.”
