A recent sledding accident in Columbia, Missouri could prompt local officials to consider a ban on the wintertime activity, a step taken by an increasing number of U.S. cities and municipalities.
Emergency responders yesterday rushed 20-year-old Kathleen Oglesby to the hospital after she crashed while sledding with her younger sister Olivia in southwest Columbia, ABC 17 reports.
The woman had surgery for a back injury and was in serious condition Tuesday night, according to the news site.
The tragic event could prompt discussions by local officials over the safety of sledding, a conversation that has led more and more areas to ban the wintertime activity on public property.
