Florida Woman Run Over By Christmas Parade Float

PENSACOLA (CBSMiami/AP) — A fun holiday event turned into a scary situation over the weekend in northern Florida.

A woman is recovering after being run over by a float in the Pensacola Christmas parade.

Officer Tony Garza tells the Pensacola News Journal 59-year-old Miriam Mimms stepped into the street to pick something up along the parade route Saturday evening when she was apparently bumped from behind and fell into the path of a float.

Officials say a safety person walking with the float saw Mimms fall and pulled her head away from the path of the float’s tire. Authorities say the float ran over the left torso.

The parade was delayed for about 30 minutes. The incident is under investigation.

Mimms was in stable condition when she was taken to the hospital.

  1. Who sponsored the float? Hopefully it was a non-profit type organization so this dumb bint doesn’t get a dime for pain and suffering.

    Getting hit by a parade float is right up there on the Darwin scale as getting hit by a train. A train rides on 2 rails and never swerves. A parade float goes about 1 mile an hour and spectators line the route. You’d have to be a special kind of stupid to get hit by a parade float.

  2. “Hillary got run over by Deplorables
    Strolling to the White House Tuesday eve.
    You can say there’s no such thing as Karma,
    But as for me and Cankles, we believe.”


  3. Miriam Mimms got sloshed on Pimms
    And staggered into the street
    She was bumped by a float
    ‘Twas handed a C note
    And cried “bring on the whole fleet!!!”
