Man Recovering From Accident At State Fair

KSAL StaffSeptember 20, 2013

A 74-year-old man is recovering from an accident at the Kansas State Fair that put him in the hospital.

Valley Falls resident Earl Stevens suffered broken facial bones and other injuries in the accident two weeks ago.

Stevens and his family camp at the fair every year for a long weekend.

Stevens was on a sidewalk that crosses in front of a zip line operated by a community college program. Stevens was hit by a zip line rider. The rider wasn’t hurt, but Stevens was hospitalized in Wichita with injuries including a concussion, a broken nose and sore ribs.

After the accident, the fair and the college barricaded the walkway so people couldn’t cross in front of the ride.
