Warrant issued for driver in Camp Dearborn hayride accident; suspended without pay

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- A part-time camp employee is suspended without pay after the tractor he was driving tipped during a hayride, sending nine riders to hospitals.

Police in Milford say a warrant was obtained on the driver of the tractor during the Camp Dearborn incident that occurred on Sunday, October 27.

The warrant is for Reckless Driving which is a 93 day misdemeanor and/or $500 fine.

The driver is a 28-year-old Highland Township resident that is a Milford mailing address.

Police say the suspect has been notified of the warrant but his name will not be released by until he is arraigned on the warrant. That is expected to take place within the next few days.

Police have said the driver had been drinking. A preliminary breath test showed his blood-alcohol content was 0.06 percent. In Michigan, the legal limit for a motor vehicle driver is 0.08 percent.

The Dearborn mayor's office says Wednesday in a release that the driver will remain suspended, pending the outcome of an investigation into Sunday's accident at Camp Dearborn in Milford Township, about 30 miles northwest of Detroit.
 
The city of Dearborn owns the camp and has said the trailer tipped and righted itself on the last night of its fall hayride season.
