Teen Dead After Being Run Over by Float

Comments Off

A driver towing a float in a Carnival parade accidentally ran over and killed his 16-year-old brother.

Clay Michael Sayer was standing between Kain N. Sayer’s pickup truck and the float behind it, talking to riders on the float during a brief stop around 5 p.m. Saturday, Trooper Scott Moreau said. The teen was pinned by the float when the truck started moving again, Moreau said.

Kain Sayer, 21, was charged with vehicular homicide, drunken driving and careless driving. A deputy at the jail where Sayer was located said that he posted bail, but was unsure what the amount was and whether Sayer had an attorney.

The accident occurred just north of Marksville, Louisina, a town of 5,800 which is about 75 miles northwest of Baton Rouge.
