LEBANON, Ind. (WISH) - One person suffered serious injuries and three others were hurt in Thursday's Fourth of July parade in Lebanon.
Police say three people fell off a parade float immediately following the parade in the area of the Lebanon Middle School.
The school is located at 1800 North Grant Street.
All three were taken by ambulance to the hospital. One person remains in the hospital Friday.
Police say a 14-year-old fell off the float and was run over by a wagon tire. The victim, Cameron Wilson, was transferred to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health in Indianapolis with serious internal injuries. He was upgraded to good condition Friday afternoon.
"He's got a broken right collarbone, a broken left shoulder. He's got a broken spleen," Cameron's father said Friday.
Cameron's father got emotional while speaking to the media Friday.
"I didn't think that my son was going to live," he said. "That was tough."
The float was being pulled by a pick up truck driven by a 15-year-old male with a learner's permit. The driver was accompanied by a parent.
Authorities are still investigating whether or not there was wrong-doing on the teen driver's part.
Two other people fell off the float and were transported to Witham Hospital. Both victims were treated and released.
Thousands of people in Indianapolis were without power early Thursday morning.
Hoosiers saw unbearably cold temperatures Thursday morning.
Mintonye Elementary School may be ready to open in August, but Southwestern Middle School won't be ready. That's the preliminary assessment Superintendent Scott Hanback told the Tippecanoe School Corporation school board Wednesday evening.
