Person Run Over By Parade Float In Wis.

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A parade in Trempealeau County, Wis. was interrupted when a participant was accidentally run over by a float on Sunday afternoon.

According to the Wisconsin State Patrol, the accident happened at Broiler Fest just before 2:30 p.m. on WIS 95 at St. Joseph’s Avenue near the city of Arcadia, which is 2 ½ hours southeast of the Twin Cities.

The victim, Joshua Paulson, was handing out candy while riding on a float that was atop a trailer being pulled by a pick-up truck.
