Teenage Boy Seriously Injured During a Hayride

On Saturday, September 26, a teenage boy was seriously injured during a hayride in Hankinson.
According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, the accident happened on Saturday afternoon when an Oktoberfest celebration was underway.

Two flatbed hay trailers had around 25 riders on them, and they were being pulled by an Allis Chalmers tractor through the streets of Hankinson at around 5 mph. Thirteen year old Ethan Peterson fell off the first trailer for an unknown reason and was then run over by the second one.

He was transported first by Hankinson ambulance and then airlifted to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo with what are said to be very serious injuries. Donald Buckhaus, aged 59 and of Hankinson was driving the tractor and he was uninjured.

The investigation is ongoing and this is indeed a sad time for the family as the teen lost his father a little over a week ago due to heart disease.
