BATTLE CREEK, Mich. -- One person is dead after an accident during the "pyrotechnic portion" of an air show in Michigan, police said.

The incident occurred Saturday shortly after 1 p.m. at the Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival, held at Battle Creek Executive Airport.

Chris Darnell, 40, died while driving a race truck dubbed the Shockwave Jet Truck during the air show, police said in an update Saturday evening.

The accident is under investigation.

Dramatic video by attendees of the air show captured the truck racing two aircraft on the runway before the accident occurred. A small fire behind the truck can be seen as the vehicle slides past a large fireball and crashes, ABC News reported.

"Oh boy, we've got an incident here with our Shockwave out here at Air Show Center," the announcer can be heard saying following the accident.

The Battle Creek Fire Department, Battle Creek Police Department and Federal Aviation Administration responded to the scene, police said.

Police have not released any further information amid the investigation.

The remainder of Saturday's air show was canceled "out of respect for the incident that has occurred," Battle Creek Field of Flight said in a statement. Saturday evening's activities were scheduled to resume at the festival, which runs through Monday.

Shockwave, a custom-built race truck, is owned by Darnell Racing Enterprises, based in Springfield, Missouri. ABC News has reached out to the company for comment.

The truck, which was equipped with three flame-shooting jet engines, was capable of racing at over 350 mph, according to its owners. It frequently appeared at air show and drag racing exhibitions across the country.

Darnell was involved in motorsports "his entire life," according to a bio on Darnell Racing's website, and worked with his father in the business.

San Francisco 49ers | Ex-49ers star Frank Gore faces assault charge from domestic violence call, police say

Former 49ers running back Frank Gore is facing a simple assault charge after an investigation into a domestic dispute at a New Jersey casino last month, according to police.

Atlantic City police officers responded to a call regarding a domestic dispute at the Tropicana casino just after 8 a.m. on July 31 and encountered a 28-year-old woman, who police did not identify, speaking with hotel security but found at that time that she did not have any signs of injury and “complaints were not filed at the time.”

But a subsequent investigation led police to recommend the assault charge against the 39-year-old Gore. The police release did not specify what in that investigation led them to recommend the charge against Gore, the leading rusher in 49ers team history and the third-leading rusher in NFL history. He was issued a summons for a court date, which TMZ reports will be in mid-October.

Gore played 10 years with the 49ers before spending his final six seasons elsewhere (three in Indianapolis, one each with the Bills, Dolphins and Jets). His last season was 2020, in New York, and he left the door open to playing in 2021 but did not secure a contract, instead signing a one-day contract this offseason to retire with the 49ers.

Since his playing days, Gore has taken up boxing. He lost an exhibition match to former NBA player Deron Williams, then won in his pro debut in May over Yaya Olorunsola.
