An 11-year-old male was struck by a trailer/float during the Christmas In The Park Parade Friday.
According to officials with the Brazil City Police Department, at approximately 7:20 p.m., the boy was allegedly struck by the float at the 300 block of East National Avenue during the parade.
Officials stated the boy was walking in the parade handing out flyers. He allegedly approached the trailer/float on the passenger side, near the wheels to collect more flyers.
However, the boy's leg made contact with the rear tire and was pulled to the ground and the tire rolled over his leg.
The boy was attended to by various emergency response personnel, including TransCare and Clay County Search and Rescue, and was later transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital via TransCare, where he was treated and later released.
