Elderly man injured in tractor accident


On August 10 at 12:18 p.m. the Pine County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a farm accident in the 28000 block of Greenbriar Road in Chengwatana Township. The caller reported a relative had been run over by a tractor.

First responders on scene found a male in his 80s just into the woods off a hayfield. The male had apparently been trying to start the tractor from the ground not realizing the tractor was in gear. The tractor, when started, rolled forward and over the victim causing injuries to his head, chest, arms and legs.

North Memorial Air Care was dispatched to the scene and transported the victim to a hospital in the Twin Cities with serious injuries.

The victim’s name is not being released at this time pending notification of family members.

Assisting at the scene were Pine County deputies, Essentia Ambulance, Pine City Fire and Pine EMS.
