Tyler Tomlinson, Esq., a shareholder in Stark & Stark’s Accident & Personal Injury Group, is currently representing several of the individuals that were seriously hurt when a large tree landed on a covered wagon tour in Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon.
On June 2, 1011, Mountain Trail Horse Center was showing the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon to a group of senior citizens from New Jersey. It was towards the end of their trip when a large oak tree came crashing down on a covered wagon on the Pine Creek Trail. The trunk split off from the base of the main trunk and crashed across the middle of the horse-drawn wagon sending ten people to hospitals in helicopters and ambulances.
Fortunately, Wellsboro Fireman’s Ambulance Association, Inc., personnel had trained for a similar situation and were already at the station for a hazardous materials drill. It took all of the ambulances in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, plus several more from nearby, and a few helicopters to evacuate the injured to safety.
