DENMARK – A 4-year-old boy was injured when a semitrailer ran over his leg Sunday during the annual Lions Parade.
Rescue was called just before noon to the parade on Brown County KB for a report that a boy had been hit by a semitrailer, according to a Brown County Sheriff’s Office news release.
The boy was retrieving candy with children during the parade when he got too close to the trailer — owned by R. Schlies Transfer, Inc. — and the full-sized milk tanker partially ran over his leg.
The boy was briefly pinned under the trailer and suffered a “significant leg injury.” He is being treated at a local hospital.
Authorities are still investigating the crash but believe neither drugs or alcohol were a factor.
