Multiple injuries, two hospitalized when hayride tipped over at Camp Dearborn
Michigan personal injury attorney at Goldman & Associates is reporting on an unfortunate hayride accident at Milford’s Camp Dearborn. According to police, a tractor-pulled hayride carrying 18 passengers tipped over late in the afternoon of October 27th, injuring multiple individuals. Two individuals were taken by Huron Valley Ambulance to a nearby hospital and are listed in stable condition.
A statement on Camp Dearborn’s Facebook page regarding the incident reads, “There were injuries to some participants. Most were treated on site and have since left the campground. Additional participants were alert yet transported via ambulance to a local hospital for further evaluation and treatment. Later scheduled hayrides proceeded without issue.”
This time of year is a fantastic time to enjoy the beautiful scenery that is autumn in Michigan. From cider mills to these Halloween-inspired hayrides, parents can expect to enjoy good-natured, safe family activities. However, as is the case with any motor vehicle carrying multiple individuals, the danger for serious injury persists. Unlike a conventional automobile, these rides and carriers are rarely equipped with a seat belt or corresponding safety mechanism to protect the ride’s occupants.
If you or your family member is involved in a similar accident, be sure to monitor their health in the weeks following the crash. Oftentimes, symptoms from these accidents may not arise immediately and individuals can go without the proper medical treatment. If you or your family member experiences any discomfort anytime following such an accident, contact a doctor immediately. If, as a result, you or a family member is diagnosed with serious injuries, call a personal injury attorney to discuss your options.
