Witnesses reported store fronts blown out and bloody spectators were carried away from the scene. The race was stopped and the area is being evacuated. The first explosion happened across from the Lenox Hotel and the second blast was about 15 seconds later, witnesses said. Many of the injuries appeared to be spectators who gathered to watch the race.
