A terrifying accident sends an oversized monster truck plowing into a crowd of people in Illinois.

Nine were hurt, including a mother and child. This home video captures the monster truck ... Meant to entertain, instead losing control crashing into the crowd watching.

 It happened outside a "Napa Auto Parts Store" in Dekalb, Illinois.

Unlike a typical monster truck rally, with spectators safely in the stands.

This truck performed on a city street without any guard rails.

Jeannie Szostak and her 4 children were in the direct path of the 5- ton truck .

Jeannie says she knows she's lucky she and her family walked away with only bumps and bruises.

Yesterday's scene is similar to this street racing event back in June in Selmer Tennessee. When a high- speed drag racer careened into unprotected spectators killing 6.

Remarkably, there were no fatalities from yesterday's accident though a mother and child are being treated for serious injuries.
