Ferris wheel accident: Authorities say a teen's crutches might have caused a Ferris wheel cab to tip and two children to fall about 15 feet at a southeastern Michigan fair in Chelsea. The Ann Arbor News reported Saturday that a 16-year-old girl boarded the ride with crutches Thursday night at the Chelsea Community Fair. Investigators say they could have slid out and lodged in a way that caused the cab to tip. The girl was with her 8-year-old brother, who has been released from the hospital. The girl has not. Chelsea Police Chief Ed Toth says officers will speak with the girl before determining the cause.
