“Today we know yesterday’s incident was a tragic accident, and not a criminal act directed at anyone, or any group of individuals,” Blocker said.Neither the driver nor the victims have been identified, and Blocker did not provide details about what caused Saturday night's accident, which occurred just before the event was to begin.

One person died and another was injured after a pickup truck struck them. Both the driver and the victims were connected to the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus, which was involved in the Pride event, according to the group’s president, Justin Knight.

Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis, who attended the parade, initially described the crash as a “terrorist attack on the LGBT community.” But on Sunday, Trantalis clarified that while this assertion had appeared “obvious” to him and others at the time, facts uncovered by investigators showed the crash appeared to be an accident involving a truck that “careened out of control.”

1 dead after people hit by truck in accident at South Florida gay pride march: PoliceInvestigators are calling the deadly incident at a South Florida Pride parade a “tragic accident” and not a criminal act.
