Albert Lea Woman Killed at Iowa Fourth of July Parade
SLATER, Iowa (AP) — A Minnesota woman was killed and three other people injured at an Independence Day parade in Iowa.
Iowa State Police say a 2007 Hyundai Sonata was parked on the street after Saturday's parade when pedestrians were in the road. The Des Moines Register reports a 75-year-old woman backed out and struck several people. Four people were dragged under the vehicle.
Fifty-nine-year-old Mary Nienow of Alberta Lea, Minnesota, was killed. A 67-year-old woman, a 30-year-old woman and a 6-year-old child were also injured.
Each year, 5,000-6,000 people descend on the town of about 1,500 residents for its Fourth of July festivities.
