Democrats pounced on a tragic incident that unfolded Saturday at a Fort Lauderdale LGBT Pride celebration in which one person was killed when a truck ran into a crowd celebrating Pride Month.
But, as it turned out, the driver of that vehicle was probably not a hate-filled individual who specifically targeted the LGBT event.
Two people were struck — and one of them later died — when a white truck accelerated into a crowd as the Stonewall Pride Parade was starting Saturday evening, WPLG-TV reported. The incident happened in Wilton Manors, Florida.
According to WPLG, "The white pickup truck was lined up with other floats when it accelerated and ran over two men standing by." The truck then crashed through a nearby gate and came to rest in a plant nursery.
