Driver charged with misdemeanor in Camp Dearborn hayride accident

MILFORD, Mich. (WXYZ) - Milford Police say a warrant has been issued for the driver of a hayride that flipped over the weekend, injuring several people.

The 28-year-old driver has been charged with Reckless Driving, which is a local misdemeanor violation. He faces up to 93 days in jail and/or a $500 fine, if convicted.

He is expected to be arraigned on the charge in the near future.

The man was driving the tractor-pulled wagon on Sunday evening when it somehow tipped. A passenger on the ride told 7 Action News she believes the driver was traveling too quickly.

At least five people were sent to the hospital. Sixteen people were seated in the wagon, and 12 of them were injured.

The police chief says the driver, whose name is not being release, had a .06 blood alcohol content. That is below the state driving limit of .08.

We reached out to the City of Dearborn, which owns and operates Camp Dearborn in Milford, but our calls for comment have not been returned.
