Hospital officials say more than a dozen people have been injured at a Fourth of July parade in eastern Iowa after two horses pulling a carriage got spooked and ran out of control along the parade route.

Carol Dietzel, house supervisor at Mercy Medical Center-Dubuque, says 10 patients were brought there, nine of them children. She says one child was flown to University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa
City in critical condition.

Other patients were taken to Finley Hospital in Dubuque and Jackson County Hospital in Maquoketa. Their conditions were not immediately known.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reported that the horses ran for more than eight blocks, hitting signs, jumping curbs and galloping over children.
