The owner of Amy's Kitchen restaurant is back at work today after a freak accident at Sunday's Greeneville Christmas Parade.

Amy Shipley said she was walking alongside the Amy's Kitchen float as it rounded a corner near the Sandwich House at North Main Street and Bohannon Avenue when the driver inadvertently ran over her foot.

Shipley was helping children off the float at the time of the accident.

Onlookers told the driver to stop, which he did.

Unfortunately, one of the float tires came to a stop on top of Shipley's foot.

"I was yelling, 'go, go, go!'" she said.

Shipley suffered a broken little toe, and another one of her toes was dislocated. She was treated at Laughlin Memorial Hospital and was back at work today, on a scaled-down basis.

She learned this morning she suffered a "crack" in her heel and must wear a splint.

That didn't stop Shipley from going to work today.

"I've been up here working limited stretches," she said. "[The toe] is turning purple, but it feels good."

A girl may have earler had her foot run over at the same parade location, but did not suffer any injuries, Shipley said.

"It's something about that curve," she said.

The Amy's Kitchen float was on a "big trailer," Shipley said.

"It wasn't [the driver's] fault," she said.
