EDMOND, Okla. - Authorities say a boy has died after he was run over by a float at the end of a Fourth of July parade in central Oklahoma.

Edmond Police Officer James Hamm says the boy was riding on a martial arts group's float at the city's LibertyFest parade on Thursday morning. Hamm says the boy fell or got down from the float at the end of the parade and was struck by the same vehicle.

Authorities in Edmond, just north of Oklahoma City, didn't immediately release the names of the boy or the driver.

Hamm says the incident was an unfortunate, freak accident.
