3 hurt after motorcycle hits ‘Zombie’ float at Atlanta parade

A motorcycle with two riders slammed into the back of the “Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse” truck float Saturday afternoon during the annual Little Five Points Halloween parade in Atlanta.

According to witness Mark Williams of Marietta, it appeared the male driver was “trying to pop a wheelie” as the parade was passing on Euclid Avenue. He lost control and he and a female passenger were thrown off the motorcycle, Williams said.

“He went over the handlebars, and she fell off the back,” Williams said.

The parade was delayed about 15 minutes but resumed after an ambulance and police arrived. A third person, who was standing on the tailgate of the truck when the motorcycle struck, also appeared to have been injured.

The identities of the accident victims were not immediately known. Witnesses said the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
