Minor injuries reported at Utica resort

Posted by wlpo on December 25, 2013

A Christmas Eve visit to Grizzly Jack’s Grand Bear Lodge in Utica took a bad turn after an accident involving an indoor carnival ride.

Seven people were taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru for what Utica Fire Chief Ben Brown described as minor injuries.  The accident happened around 8pm Tuesday and involved the resort’s Demolition Derby ride.

Brown says ambulances arrived from Utica, La Salle, Ottawa, Peru, Oglesby and Mendota.

A state inspector is expected to look at the ride Wednesday.
