KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An Oak Grove man has been charged in connection to a hayride accident in rural eastern Jackson County last October that injured nearly a dozen people, prosecutors said on Wednesday.

Kaylon J. Childers, 27, has been charged with four counts of second-degree assault, driving while intoxicated and misdemeanor driving on a revoked license in connection to the October 8 wreck. He is currently in custody in the Jackson County Jail, being without bond.

According to prosecutors, a hay wagon with passengers was being pulled by a tractor along H Highway just north of Pink Hill Road when a pickup being driven by Childers struck the left rear wheel of the wagon as it tried to pass it, ejecting 12 people from the wagon, leaving two people with critical injuries.

Prosecutors say that Childers has previous DWI convictions.
