People who were at the scene, particularly anyone with video or dashcam footage, are being urged to contact Hertfordshire Police. They are our pride and joy, what we are interested in. Sidhu says it was the first time the event had suffered any serious incident in its 17-year history, with static meets often held in closed-off spaces where enthusiasts show off their modified vehicles.

Mr Sidhu told PA a small number of cars "went rogue" and left the auto park, where crowds lined the main road to capture footage of the vehicles at speed.

Seventeen people were injured after two cars collided and ploughed into spectators at a weekly meeting of a auto club in an English town. He says it happened outside the parking lot when the Toyota was hit by the Nissan while traveling "at least" 60 miles per hour.

One organiser described the crash as "horrific" and a "nightmare".

He added: "I'm thankful that nobody died. We try and stop that, we urge people — urge them on social media beforehand — not to go out on the roads, not to risk injury or anything".

The joint partnership plans to open 10 additional stores in "prime, high-traffic retail markets" within the USA throughout 2020. Barry said more details about the stores will be announced in the coming weeks, including an added online experience.

He said organisers had made a decision to cancel all further meets.

The Daily Mail reported, citing a spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service, that 12 people had been taken to three hospitals, including the Lister Hospital in Stevenage.

An air ambulance also attended the incident.

The single carriageway section of A-road is in a non-residential area and passes a retail park near to Stevenage Football Club. Two vehicles crashed at a "car cruise" gathering leading to many injuries while onlookers watched on.

The auto club held an event which was reportedly described as an "extra special meet" to gather money for a charity called 4Louis which provides equipment and training to hospitals and medics involved in the death of a child, according to Daily Mail.
