Oakland County Prosecutor to decide if charges will be filed in Camp Dearborn hayride accident

MILFORD, Mich. (WXYZ) - The Oakland County Prosecutor will determine if charges should be filed against the driver of a hayride that tipped over the weekend, injuring several people.

Milford Police Chief Thomas Lindberg told 7 Action News  his department will send the case to the prosecutor's officer Tuesday afternoon for review.

A 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.

Lindberg says it's unclear how the accident happened, but 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.
