A Crystal Lake South High School student was injured about 4 p.m. Friday after trying to board a moving homecoming parade float, authorities said.
The student tried to jump upon the float -- a small utility trailer being pulled by an SUV -- but the student's foot "became entangled with a moving wheel and the ground, and subsequently the wheel rolled over the student's foot and lower leg," according to a police news release. The float was carrying parade participants.
The Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Department responded to the scene and transported the student to Centegra Hospital -- Woodstock. The student was treated and later released.
No citations have been issued, although police say they continue to investigate the incident.
