Fatal accident at Pumpkin Land, Harvest Hill Farms


As investigators determined, a mechanical problem prevented the SUV pulling the wagon from stopping. As a consequence, the crash “threw everyone off the trailer and into each other and into trees,” said Sgt. Joel Davis of the state fire marshal’s office. More than 20 other people ranging in age from 10 to 50 years were hurt and were transported to hospitals. They had broken bones, broken leg bones, femur bones, broken backs, shoulder injuries, ankle injuries, scrapes, cuts and head injuries. The injured include ride workers. “For the remainder of the season, we are suspending any activities at The Gauntlet” said Peter Bolduc, owner of Harvest Hill Farms. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the injured and their families,” added John Wallace, a spokesman for the farm. Pumpkin Land and all events at Harvest Hill Farms were closed Sunday. A fundraiser was set to help Charette’s family.
