1 dead, 1 injured after crash in Florida

One person was killed and another seriously injured after a pickup truck slammed into crowds at the start of a pride parade in South Florida on Saturday night, officials said.

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, who was at the The Stonewall Pride Parade event, with U.S. Representatives Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ted Deutch, confirmed the incident on Twitter and said the driver was in custody.

“I’m lucky to be safe” Fried tweeted. “All of us here praying for them and their families.”

One victim was hospitalized while the other died of his injuries, authorities said, according to the Associated Press.

The Fort Lauderdale Police Department did not immediately respond to USA TODAY’s request for comment. It was not immediately clear whether the driver had acted intentionally.
