A large crowd gathered in Campustown on Tuesday night and flipped a car on Welch Avenue. Video by Noah Cary/Iowa State Daily.

Unintelligible (dolphin-like voice): [PERHAPS] “Why are you taking photos?”

Camera operator: “I’m just taking photo journalism — that’s all.”

At least one person has been critically injured during a violent disturbance at the annual VEISHEA celebration at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. As of 5:00 a.m. Wednesday, there are no public safety updates regarding the violence, and there are no requests for calm on any of the social media sites, such as the official Facebook page and Twitter account for VEISHEA. Also, there are no updates or mention of violence on any of the social media sites for the Ames Police Department or the City of Ames, Iowa regarding the violence that occurred overnight Tuesday/Wednesday.

From the police department there is only a vague message that apparently refers to the violence, but could be related to the power outage. The message is lacking detail …

VEISHEA is an annual week long celebration held each spring on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, which features an annual parade and many open-house demonstrations of the university facilities and departments. Campus organizations exhibit products, technologies, and hold fund raisers for various charity groups.

VEISHA is the acronym for …
Veterinary Medicine
Industrial Science
Home Economics

Commander Huff speaks about large crowds on Welch, and hesitates to call the disturbance a riot. Regarding an injured victim, “It does sound like he was ‘life-flighted’ … I’ve heard that from enough people to believe that it probably true.”

Somehow Ames Police Commander Geoff Huff is not sure whether an injured victim has been “life-flighted” — referring to the possibility that a person was injured seriously enough to require a medical transport helicopter for transportation to a hospital. Not necessarily a criticism of the police commander, but an indication that the chain of command, the communication channels, and situational awareness by public safety personnel is lacking.

A large crowd gathered at the corner of Welch Avenue and Chamberlain Street on Tuesday night and took down street lamps.

Bystanders cheered after witnessing property damage, including the toppling a street lamp.

“Get off the road, there’s somebody dead right there … I’m not even kidding.”

An individual tries to usher people off the road after someone was injured on the corner of Welch Avenue and Chamberlain Street on Tuesday night. The condition of the injured person is still unknown.

On Tuesday night during Veishea, a large crowd flipped a car on Welch Avenue. Video by Ryan Young/Iowa State Daily.

The roof and shape of a Ford Crown Victoria appears resistant to complete overturning by students during the disturbance. The car appears to be a government vehicle, but it is unknown if it was a law enforcement vehicle.
