Spectator killed during Jeep demonstration in Edmonton

A spectator has been killed after a Jeep demonstration at an Edmonton fundraising event went disastrously wrong.

The event was called "Jeeps Go Topless" and was being held in the parking lot of a shopping centre to raise funds for the Edmonton Food Bank.

Police say it appears one of the Jeeps was involved in a climbing demonstration when it lost control and struck a woman.

Police say the driver of the Jeep was also taken to hospital with unknown injuries.

No one from the food bank could be immediately reached for comment.
