Teen run over by trailer during Hayride of Horrors
A 15-year-old boy was run over by a trailer during the Heritage Haunt event Friday night in Newhall, sheriff’s officials said Saturday.
He is in stable condition, according to the report.
The Hayride of Horrors volunteer was portraying a character along the hayride route as part of the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society’s Halloween celebration at William S. Hart Park.
As the victim approached the hayride trailer, he slipped and was run over by the tires of the trailer, according to the report from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. The incident happened around 8:30 p.m. on Friday, and about 13 passengers were on the trailer that was being towed by a truck, according to the report.
The victim endured significant injuries and was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.
The SCV Historical Society declined to comment Saturday about the incident.
The haunted hayride, which is the longest hayride in Los Angeles County, continued Saturday during the annual Pumpkin Festival at Hart Park.
