PHOTOS: Hurricane Ana effects seen from Big Island
2009: An assassination attempt on Queen Beatrix leaves six people dead and 11 injured during a Queen's Day parade in Apeldoorn, Netherlands. The incident occurred when a man drove his car at a high speed into a parade that included Beatrix and other members of the royal family. The car missed an open bus carrying the Dutch royal family and instead crashed into a roadside monument. The driver, 38-year-old Dutch national Karst Roeland Tates, died the following day of injuries suffered in the crash. Another victim died from her injuries days later, bringing the death toll in the attack to seven, not including Tates. Pictured here is Prince Willem Alexander (center) and Princess Maxima (to his right) watching the accident scene from the top of the bus. Queen Beatrix is pictured at the bottom left in the red hat.
