A mother of two died in a “freak accident” while watching a tractor pulling at a Pennsylvania fair when part of a vehicle’s wheel broke off during competition, striking her in the neck. Brandy Horner was killed Friday night at the Union County West End Fair in Laurelton after an “equipment malfunction” caused the escape wheel to come loose and shoot into the stands, striking the man in 33 years old, according to the Pennsylvania State Police.
Off-duty medical workers and first responders on the scene tried to help her before she was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead. “It was a freak accident,” fair president Dennis Boop told PennLive.com. Although the fair’s activities continued, the rest of the events at the traction track were canceled “due to unforeseen circumstances,” the fair’s organizers wrote on their Facebook page.

No foul play or criminality was suspected, police said.
