1 hurt in Spain on 5th running of the bulls

One person was injured on the fifth day of the running of the bulls at the San Fermin festival in what was otherwise a fast, clean sprint.

One bull took off like lightning, knocking runners over as if they were toys, as the pack of six fighting beasts _ and six steers meant to keep them together _ left the corral and rumbled through the old quarter of Pamplona.

Spanish Red Cross spokesman Jose Aldaba said one person was hospitalized with an injury to the right leg that was sustained in a fall.

Three runs remain in Spain's most famous summer festival.

Navarra Hospital said two people are still hospitalized from earlier runs, as well as a young man who fell from a monument during an opening-day party.
