Chuckwagon driver injured at Stampede

Last Updated Jul 11, 2018 at 1:14 pm MDT

A Chuckwagon driver is recovering in hospital after falling out his wagon last night.

46-year-old Obrey Motowylo suffered a broken collarbone and is undergoing further tests.

Calgary Stampede Spokesperson Kristina Barnes explains what happened during the 8th heat of the Rangeland Derby.

“As he turned the top barrel his wagon tipped a bit to the right and as it corrected itself Obrey did come out of the wagon and then made contact with the wagon itself as it rolled forward.”

Barnes says Motowylo nominated Codey McCurrach to drive his wagon.
