(Newser) – People got hurt at America's first "running of the bulls" in Virginia on Saturday—but not for the reason you might expect. An aerial drone, apparently being used to film the event, fell out of the sky and crashed into spectators, reports the Washington Post. According to the local sheriff's office, four or five people suffered minor injuries in the crash. A few people were also injured in the more traditional way—of the 4,000 who showed up to take part in the first Great Bull Run, two were sent to hospital with "concussion-like" symptoms, and another was treated at the scene after falling and being trampled by other runners, Reuters reports.
