A drone capturing video of a sporting event in Virginia crashed into bleachers of spectators on Saturday.

The unmanned craft was filming the Great Bull Run in Dinwiddie, Va. when it fell from the sky and minorly injured four people.

Major W.B. Knott of the Dinwiddie sheriff’s department did not say whether his office knew who owned the drone, reports The Washington Post. No one sustained injuries requiring hospitalization.

The event was supposed to be an all day festival featuring bands, drinking and four separate running of the bull events. It is modeled after the internationally famous running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain and is scheduled to be one of ten events throughout different cities, according to NBC.

Around eight thousand spectators showed up for the Virginia event, despite the protestations of animal rights groups like PETA.
