Worker Injured Setting Up Haywood NC Fair
If they already didn’t have enough problems in Haywood County NC…yesterday a worker helping to set things up for the County Fair had part of a ride fall on him. Police say that the worker was placing jacks on the ride’s transport trailer. As he was doing so, one of the walls of the Umbrella Ride, which was disassembled on the trailer, fell on top of him….his injuries were serious enough to airlift him to the hospital. Police say the man, who was not identified was alert and awake the entire time.
The Haywood County fair is this weekend August 26-29th at the Smoky Mountain Event Center on Hwy 209 in Waynesville…just a few miles off I-40.
