MILFORD, Mich. - A Camp Dearborn employee who is accused of driving a hayride tractor that tipped Sunday, injuring several people, has been suspended.

In a statement Wednesday, the city said the 28-year-old hadn't been allowed to work at the camp, which is located in Milford, since the incident and would be suspended without pay pending the outcome of a police investigation.

Milford Police Chief Tom Lindberg told Local 4 the tractor driver had a blood alcohol level of .06 on a preliminary breath test -- which is not admissible in court.

The case will be turned over to the prosecutor's office for the determination of any charges.

Eighteen people were thrown to the ground when the hayride tipped over. At least three people had to be taken to nearby hospitals for treatment.
