A Halloween hayride may now haunt the passengers for life. 20 children were enjoying a hayride on Friday night when the trailer was rear-ended by an SUV.
At least 11 of the children have been injured, and one adult male has suffered moderate injuries, according to Trooper 1st Class Jared Sandifer in a press release.
The injured man, whose name has not been released, was airlifted to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center. He had been riding on the front utility rack of the ATV.
The children were all taken to local hospitals.
At approximately 9 p.m. on westbound La. 1024 / Cane Market Rd, the hayride trailer, being pulled by a 2009 Honda ATV, was struck from behind by a 2013 Mazda CX-5, driven by Victoria Farr of Denham Springs, 33.
The driver of the ATV, Ashley Posey of Denham Springs, 37, was cited for no authorization to use an off-road vehicle on the shoulders of certain public roads and highways, and operating without tail lamps.
According to the press release, Farr was cited for operating without a safety belt, and operating with no child passenger restraint.
