A deceased in the LGTBI Pride parade in Florida after being run over by a truck



The LGTBI Pride parade in the city of Wilton Manors, in the US state of Florida, has been canceled after a truck has run over the public, killing an assistant and hurting another.

The local police have published on their social networks that, because of the “Tragic event”, the parade has been canceled, although he has remarked that “there is no danger to the public.”

The driver of the truck has declared to the police that his foot had jammed between the accelerator pedal and the brake pedal, which has made him lose control of the vehicle, according to CBS Miami.

However, the security forces have not made any official statement for the moment on whether there are indications that the accident was intentional.

Despite this, the mayor of the neighboring city Fort Lauderdale, Dean Trantalis, has told the WSVN television network that the driver has acted as if he were part of the parade because he was on the route of the march when the authorities demanded that he leave the place.

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, who was at the event, wrote on her Twitter account that the driver of the vehicle is now in police custody, and has conveyed its condolences for what happened.

Along the same lines, Florida’s representative in the House of Representatives Ted Deutch has used this same social network to express being “devastated by the horror” seen in the parade. I’m so sorry, Wilton Manors. I’m very sorry, friends, “he posted.
