Photos and videos from the scene showed Democratic MP Debbie Wasserman Schultz tearfully in a convertible at the parade. A Wasserman Schultz spokesman did not immediately return an email requesting a comment.
“We were at the start of the parade, right outside Fort Lauderdale High School,” said Christina Currie, the spectator SunSentinel in South Florida. “Suddenly there was a loud crank from a truck and a crash through a fence. … It was definitely a deliberate act across the lanes. “
Wilton Manors police tweeted Saturday night that the public was in no danger.
“A tragic incident occurred at today’s Stonewall event,” Wilton Manors Mayor Scott Newton said in a statement, according to WPLG-TV. “Out of respect for everyone involved, the parade was canceled and a thorough investigation carried out.”
