Mo. Man Sentenced for Hitting Hayride
OAK GROVE, Mo. - A northwest Missouri man who ran into a hayride filled with people while driving drunk was sentenced to seven years in prison.
Several people were knocked off the ride and two were seriously hurt when 29-nine-year-old Kaylon J. Childers of Oak Grove ran into the hayride on Missouri Route H near Oak Grove in October 2011.
Childers was sentenced Thursday to seven years on each of four counts of second-degree assault and to 100 days for driving with a revoked license. The sentences will run concurrently.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Childers' blood-alcohol content was .205 percent at the time of the accident.
