Woman sues city of Dearborn, seeking $25K in damages over 2013 hayride accident


MILFORD TOWNSHIP, Michigan — A woman has filed a lawsuit against the city of Dearborn over a 2013 hayride accident.

The Detroit Free Press ( ) reports the lawsuit filed by Cynthia Cialone seeks $25,000 in damages from the city. Cialone and her 11-year-old daughter were on a hayride wagon at Camp Dearborn in Milford Township when it tipped over.

Cialone says she fractured three ribs and hurt her neck, and that her daughter injured her arm and shoulder.

The man that drove the tractor pulling the wagon pleaded no-contest to an impaired driving charge in February 2014. He was a city of Dearborn employee.

The city has asked for the lawsuit to be dismissed, saying it is immune from liability because Cialone signed a hold harmless agreement on behalf of her group.

Five other lawsuits have been filed on behalf of people on the hayride.
