    Just to let everyone know. The float that the kid fell off and got hurt on. The police and news sources have it wrong it was coastal plains float not A1 towing’s. The driver cancelled on coastal plains at the last minute and they asked A1 to help out and tow there float. Coastal plains registered the float. A1 did not have float registered for the parade. There was suppose to be each kids parent on there to oversee there kid.

    It was not an A1towing float, it was a costal plains float being pulled by an A1 Truck as a favor to the school.
