Update: In case you were wondering, that drunken hayride out near Sandusky wasn't some little thing that's passed from everyone's radar because it was back in October of last year and hey, it was your fault for getting on a hayride in the first place.
There were plenty of injuries, plenty of trouble, for both the drunker hayride driver and the bar that organized the slow procession. The Sandusky Register reports that seven lawsuits have been making their way through the courts, all of them now semi-combined so that the things can move forward more quickly.
18 folks are involved. $800,000 in damages are being sought. More lawsuits could be filed, too. And that's just in the civil realm. Criminally, the driver is facing multiple counts of vehicular assault.
Let this serve as your reminder that if you want to get drunk and drive a hayride, make sure you don't have any passengers.
You could probably hear the collective orgasm from inside the newsplex of 19 Action News all over Cleveland when they found this story from the Sandusky area of a hayride accident where the driver was drunk, especially because this was no simple wholesome hayride — it was an adult hayride! A booze cruise! Controversy — it's what Denise Zarrella pours on her Cheerios.
(In all seriousness, we hope the folks injured in the accident are okay. )
