ALEA reports vehicle-riding lawnmower accident in Childersburg


CHILDERSBURG, Ala. – Just after 1:00 a.m. on Saturday, Alabama State Troopers responded to a 9-1-1 call reporting a traffic crash on Heasletts Rd. in Childersburg.

According to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, a minor operating a riding lawnmower was traveling westbound and uphill towing a small utility trailer with a single occupant. The trailer, which became disconnected from the lawnmower and rolled backwards into the eastbound lane, was struck by a car with the occupant still inside. The utility trailer occupant was flown by helicopter to Grady Memorial Hospital in Georgia.

The accident is still under investigation by ALEA.
