Twelve Alabama students were injured Tuesday when a car plowed into a marching band during a Mardi Gras parade.
Four are in critical condition, Gulf Shores city spokesman Grant Brown said. The victims' ages range from 12 to 17.
Six are middle school students, and six are high school students, Baldwin County Public Schools said in a statement.
As the children were treated and rushed to ambulances, dented musical instruments and debris were scattered on the street.
