Easter wagon ride overturns throwing 16 people

GRANT COUNTY, WISCONSIN (KWWL) -- An Easter Sunday wagon ride turned tragic in Grant County, Wisconsin.  Nine people were hurt, three seriously, after the horse-drawn wagon overturned.

It happened just before 5:00 p.m. on Rocky Dell Road south of Woodman.  The Grant County Sheriff's Department says 16 people were riding in the horse-drawn wagon when a piece of equipment broke sending the wagon into the horses.

The horses then went off a steep embankment with the wagon behind.  All 16 people were thrown from the wagon.

Two of the victims were airlifted to a Madison hospital.  One was airlifted to a LaCrosse hospital.
