4th of July parade takes wild turn

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

BELLEVUE, IA (WFLX) - In Iowa, it was holiday chaos.

In the small town of Bellevue, along the Mississippi River, two runaway horses stampeded through a July fourth parade, killing one woman.

At least 24 people were injured, including several children.

No one's sure what caused the horses to go berserk, but one witness says he saw someone throw a firecracker in front of them.
