The accident occurred in the parking lot of the Super "G" Deals store. Both cars were from NCCC, The National Community Clown College in Olinoy, Illinois.
The two groups were trying to beat the record for most clowns in a car when the parking brake broke on one brightly painted VW Bug and it rolled into the other.
Neither group broke the record, but there were 10 broken arms, 6 broken legs, two twisted ankles and and a vast number of bruised egos. Apparently there simply weren't enough seat belts to go around.
Grumpo the Clown said it best when he simply held up a sign that read "Boo."
