Runaway Horses Trample Through Crowd in Iowa, 1 Killed

A woman was killed and 23 people injured today after runaway horses trampled through the crowd at a Fourth of July parade in the eastern Iowa town of Bellevue.

The wagon driver lost control of the two horses when one horse rubbed the bridle off the other before they started on the parade route, Bellevue Fire Chief Chris Roling said.

The horses and wagon plowed through the spectators on the curb of U.S. Highway 52 for about seven blocks, according to DesMoinesRegister.com

A total of 24 people were taken to area hospitals, five in critical condition and five in severe condition. The injured range in age from 2 to 62 years old, and according to local authorities more than half the injured are younger than 12, Daily Beast reports.
