The annual Rye Little League parade, when baseball teams, parents and VIPs assemble at the Rye station parking lot and march through town, is a cherished Rye tradition.
On Saturday, at the 58th annual parade, a car scheduled to be used in the parade careened out of control in the train station lot, clearing a sea of people before crashing into the curb and coming to a stop. No one was seriously hurt.
Simple fast thinking, lots of screaming and a fireman leaping into the vehicle and steering it into the curb kept folks safe and prevented what could have been more damage. The out of control maroon convertible was headed towards a Rye PD squad car. No one was seriously hurt.
