LEBANON, Ind. (AP) _ Authorities say a teenage boy had his chest and abdomen run over when he fell from a float after a central Indiana city's Independence Day parade.
Lebanon police Lt. Brent Wheat says 14-year-old Cameron Wilson fell as the farm wagon being used as a float for Lebanon Youth Football was turning into a parking lot Thursday afternoon.
Wheat says the pickup truck pulling the float was driven by a 15-year-old boy with a learner's permit who was accompanied by a parent.
Wilson suffered severe internal injuries and was taken to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
A 39-year-old woman and an 11-year-old boy also fell from the float when Wilson was run over, but police say their injuries were minor.
