Tragic Parade Fatality

In Central Utah Friday an 11-year old girl fell from a truck during a parade and was struck and killed by the trailer that was being pulled by the truck.

The tragedy happened during what is called the Ute Stampede Western Heritage festival in Nephi, Utah. During the event’s parade, the young girl was trying to get out of the back of the truck when she slipped and fell to the pavement. Though the vehicle was moving slowly, the driver was unaware that someone had fallen and did not stop.

Police officers and witnesses alike came to the girl’s aid, but she later died at a nearby hospital.

Nephi Police Chief, Michael Morgan, offered condolences to the family of the child, from the city of Nephi as well as from Juab County.

The name of the victim had not been released at last report.
