— A 10-year-old boy has a blood clot in his brain and two broken legs after a crash involving a hayride this weekend, authorities said.

The accident happened Saturday night just outside of Greensboro in Guilford County.

The boy was one of six children thrown for a trailer after a car hit it from behind. The 10-year-old, pinned between the car and the trailer, was the most seriously injured of the children.

The driver of the tractor carrying the trailer faces a charge for not having its lights on, police said. The driver of the car will not face any charges.
