CHIHUAHUA, Mexico (AP) — The governor of the Mexican state of Chihuahua says a test has detected alcohol in the breath of a driver of an out-of-control monster truck that crashed into a crowd of spectators at an air show Saturday, killing eight people and hurting 79.
But Gov. Cesar Duarte Juarez isn't revealing the level found or saying whether it violated any law.
The driver is being detained on suspicion of manslaughter and officials say they're investigating possible safety violations in the setup of the show.
A spokesman for the state prosecutors' office says the driver appeared to lose control of the truck after leaping over cars it was crushing during a demonstration at the "Extreme Aeroshow."
The three-day show, which included performances by airplanes, the monster truck acts and other events, was canceled after the accident on its second day in a park on the outskirts of Chihuahua, the capital of Chihuahua state.
The governor has declared three days of mourning.
