Crash That Killed 1 At Wilton Manors LGBTQ Pride Parade Was An Accident, Police Say
A truck plowed through a crowd at an LGBTQ Pride parade Saturday night, killing one person and injuring another — but the 77-year-old man behind the wheel did not intend to hurt a soul, police say.

The driver knew both men who were hit. All three were members of the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus.
