When individuals gather for a celebration, having a good time is likely the main thing on their minds. However, even at times of joy, there is a risk for serious accidents to take place. In many cases, if an automobile accident occurs in an area with numerous people present, it is likely that multiple individuals could be seriously injured.
Such an accident recently took place in Louisiana during a Mardi Gras parade. Reports stated that while a crowd had gathered for the parade, the driver of a pickup truck crashed into the crowd. Witnesses stated that the driver was speeding before the truck hit two vehicles and multiple people. The pickup came to rest after hitting a dump truck, and several individuals were trapped under the dump truck.
