Lebanon teen injured in parade

Lebanon — Cameron Wilson, 14, Lebanon, was in Riley Hospital for Children, Indianapolis, with internal injuries suffered Thursday when he fell from and was run over by a Fourth of July parade float.

Wilson was in good condition, a public relations spokesman for Riley said at noon.

Wilson was riding on the Lebanon Youth Football League’s entry, built on a flatbed farm wagon and towed by a pickup, as it entered the Lebanon Middle School parking lot after the parade.

Wilson fell off, for reasons yet undetermined. At least one tire of the wagon ran over Wilson’s chest and abdomen, Lebanon Police Lt. Brent Wheat said.

Also injured were Amy Coffman, 39, and Caiden Coffman, 11, who also fell from the float. They were taken to Witham Memorial Hospital by Boone County EMS; they were treated for injuries and released from the hospital.

The truck pulling the float was driven by a 15-year-old who has a learner’s permit, and a parent was with him, Wheat said. Their identities were being withheld because the accident is under investigation, Wheat said. Police are reviewing whether the 15-year-old was in violation of learner’s permit conditions, Wheat said.

The parade route ended at the intersection of Grant Street and Essex Drive, parade chairwoman Jennifer Hoffman said. From there, parade units had the option of turning right, dispersing onto city streets, or turning left, back to the marshaling area at Lebanon Middle School, she said.

Rick Parsons, a paramedic and Boone County reserve deputy who was helping with crowd control, saw the accident, Wheat said.

“He immediately realized it was more serious that it appeared, and began aggressive treatment immediately,” Wheat said. Parsons notified the Boone County Dispatch Center, and initiated the mass casualty protocols called for under the Fourth of July operations plan, Wheat said.
