Two teenage girls were injured, one fatally, in separate sledding accidents on the same Ohio hill, both families said Saturday.
Natalie Wilson, 17, has been hospitalized since last weekend after she crashed at Hinckley Reservation in Medina County, said her father, Jim Wilson. She was left partly paralyzed after she suffered a break in her T5 and T6 spinal vertebrae, severely damaged her spinal cord and broke six ribs.
Wilson said in a phone interview that his daughter and a friend “were taking one last trip down the hill before going home” when their sled veered off course toward a tree line.
