Authorities: Woman injured during Cornfest parade

The Associated PressJuly 14, 2014 

— Authorities say a 51-year-old woman was treated at a hospital and released after being dragged by a float during a Michigan parade.

Bay County sheriff's Lt. James Chlebowski tells The Bay City Times (http://bit.ly/1zBzFtX ) that the woman was walking near a float on Sunday afternoon during the Auburn Cornfest Parade when a tire ran over one of her shoelaces. Her leg was pulled toward the float and she was trapped.

Chlebowski says the float dragged the woman about 10 feet, leaving her with scrapes before the float stopped and she was freed.

The parade was part of a weekend of events for the annual festival in Auburn, located about 100 miles northwest of Detroit.
