More information on Wakarusa Fest '06
Lawrence-Douglas County Fire and Medical Capt. Nathan Stover said today that 50 people had been treated for minor injuries by medical personnel staffing the Wakarusa Music & Camping Festival.
A dozen people had been transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, but no one was reported to be in critical condition.
The nature of the injuries varied - one person fell off a bike, a girl cut her hand on a broken glo-stick, while at least one patient appeared to be under the influence of drugs.
Some heat-related health conditions had been reported; officials were expecting more as the day progresses.
