LITTLE ROCK (Arkansas News Bureau) - A 68-year-old man driving a mule-drawn covered wagon from Michigan to Oklahoma to raise awareness about U.S. military veterans was recovering Thursday in a Fayetteville veterans hospital from injuries he sustained in a highway crash in Ozark that killed his animals.

Charles Peters suffered apparent rib injuries when a vehicle struck the mule team pulling his wagon and a trailer about 7 p.m. Wednesday on U.S. 64 in Ozark, city police Lt. Jonathan Little said Thursday.

Peters was taken to Mercy Hospital-Turner Memorial in Ozark and later transferred to the veterans hospital in Fayetteville, Little said.

One of the mules died at the scene and the other died overnight, the officer said.
