Condition of girl hurt in parade improves

A 7-year-old girl who was run over by a trailer during the Columbia Holiday Parade yesterday has been upgraded to good condition.

Shianne E. Nesmith was listed in stable condition yesterday evening after the 3:45 p.m. incident. The Columbia resident was pulled under a trailer during the parade, according to a Columbia police news release. The accident took place on Sixth Street between Broadway and Cherry streets.

The girl was participating in the Fairview United Methodist Little Bethlehem float, on a small trailer being pulled by a Dodge Durango truck. She approached the trailer to get more of the coins they were handing out, police said, when a piece of her clothing caught on the trailer and she was pulled underneath. A tire of the trailer ran over her, injuring the left side of her body. She was taken to University Hospital.

Police identified the truck’s driver as Jesse Munkirs, 61, of Columbia. Munkirs was not injured and was wearing a seat belt. There were two passengers in the trailer, another 7-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl. Neither was injured.
