UPDATE: Four People Were Injured in Friday Night's Wagon Accident at Layman Family Farms

Posted:

Blue Ridge, VA - ABC 13 has confirmed that a fourth person was injured in a wagon accident at Layman Family Farms Friday night.

Carilion Spokesperson Eric Earnhart says Emily Perkinson was treated and discharged from Roanoke Memorial Hospital over the weekend.

A friend of Perkinson told ABC 13 that Emily had minor injuries from the accident but was expected to be okay.

Montvale fire chief Scott Hawkins said that six people were on a flatbed trailer tied to a tractor when it rolled down a hill.

A disk jockey for the popular radio station K-92 FM was one of the four injured, ABC 13 has confirmed.

According to Bedford Dispatch, the call came in around 10:22 p.m. Friday.

Officials report that two people had to be air lifted to the trauma center at a nearby hospital. ABC 13 has now confirmed that two people were taken to the hospital by ambulance.

According to Hawkins, two people fell out of the trailer and were trapped underneath in the water before being removed.

The rides were part of the farm's fall festivities that included pumpkin picking and a corn maze.

The farm released a statement of support Sunday for all of those involved in the accident.
