The incident occurred around 10:14 a.m. local time, when the driver of the truck lost control and hit the child, who had been participating in the parade, “at a low rate of speed.” 

“We started dancing in the parade, and then all of a sudden, we just heard a lot of honking. And when we turned back, we saw the truck almost on our backs, so we turned away,” Bruce said.
