DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. (WAAY) - Last night around 7:15 a man driving down county road 568 in DeKalb County hit a hayride carrying 20 teens. Five were sent to the hospital and one 13 year old girl was airlifted to UAB Hospital.

Austin Love one of the victims on the hayride said, “We thought it was part of it and we figured he would just run up there really fast and then stop at the last second. He got about 14 feet away from us and I looked at my brother and said oh crap he aint gonna stop, and he hit the rear end and then I lost my grip and fell off the trailer and then he smacked another car and hit us again and it knocked my little brother over me.”

The teens were on a Deadwood Farm haunted hayride when the accident happened. According to victims the man tried to flee the scene in his car, that’s when two teens ran after him.

Calab Love one of the victims that ran after the man said, “Well me and my buddy just ran up there and my buddy took his keys from him and I was just kinda standing there and my buddy asked him why he didn't stop. He said he didn’t see the lights, but there is a big yellow light on the back and reflectors all over the trailer”

Billy Rains the Owner of Deadwood Farm said, "I'm glad that as of this morning it seems most all of them have been admitted and released. The ambulance, everybody really handeled it in a professtional way I'm just thankful there wasnt any serious injury.... the good Lord blessed us there."
