Fatal Mule Accident Claims Life

COLUMBIA, Tenn. -- A man preparing to take part in the Mule Days celebration in Maury County over the weekend was involved in a fatal accident with his mule.

L.F. Carter, 73, from Alabama, fell off his mule Friday and later died from the injuries, according to a report by Channel 4’s news partners at the Columbia Daily Herald.

Carter’s daughter told the paper that her dad was trying to climb on the animal’s saddle at Maury County Park, but the mule reared up and threw him off.

Carter did not seek medical attention immediately and died from a ruptured spleen among other injuries
