The incident took place at the Stonewall Pride Parade & Street Festival in Wilton Manors, just north of Fort Lauderdale. It came right at the start of the parade.

Florida-USA- Two people were hit by a truck at a South Florida gay pride march on Saturday evening.
Officials have not confirmed the extent of the victims’ injuries.
Authorities have not said whether it was a deliberate act. The driver was taken into custody, according to Miami ABC affiliate WPLG. The truck hit a nearby gate and came to a stop.
The vehicle also narrowly missed hitting a convertible that Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., was riding in, WPLG reported.
An emotional Wasserman Schulz, who has represented the 23rd Congressional District since 2013, could be seen making calls and being consoled by staffers afterward.
The parade was scheduled to start at 7 p.m. It was canceled after the crash, according to Wilton Manors police, though the festival continued.
