If riders were made to get off floats at the end of parades, things like this could be avoided. Kids riding floats have been seen still on them as the pick-up truck pulling them joined fast-moving trafic out of town.

I saw in a news article that the guy was riding on the tongue of the trailer. That's a big difference from riding in the float.

"lal"....try to know what you are talking about before you comment, especially if you are starting the discussion!

also everyone....do you see how easy it would be to get in serios trouble....if either if those driver were to be drinking and driving, their lives would be completely different today - vehicular homicide. And it wouldnt even be their fault, just like it currently is!

but if thet were drinking and driving...it would be a different story!

Both drivers submitted breath samples to investigators that showed they had no detectable alcohol in their systems.

New Roads is a town of poverty. Those who have old money, believe themselves rich and unaccountable. It's sickening all the way around.
