NOVI, Mich. (AP) - The driver of a hayride tractor whose wagon overturned and sent nine passengers to hospitals has pleaded no-contest to a reduced charge.

Twenty-eight-year-old Adam Forehand of Oakland County’s Highland Township made the plea to an impaired driving charge Thursday in Novi District Court. He’d originally been charged with reckless driving.

The accident happened Oct. 27, 2013, at Camp Dearborn in Milford Township, about 30 miles northwest of Detroit.

Police say Forehand had a blood-alcohol level of 0.06 percent. Michigan law defines a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or higher as drunk.

The plea deal calls for Forehand to have a restricted driver’s license for 90 days. A no-contest plea is not an admission of guilt but allows a judge to convict and sentence a defendant.
