Man escapes serious injury after pinned by overturned tractor

DARKE COUNTY – A homeowner escaped serious injury after being pinned beneath an overturned tractor at his home on the 4500 block of Grubbs Rex Road Monday afternoon.

Firefighters used the “jaws of life” to raise the tractor enough in order to free the trapped man.

It appears the man was attempting to load the tractor on to a trailer before it overturned.

CareFlight was initially put on standby to respond, but cancelled after learning the man was not seriously hurt. He was treated at the scene by rescue.
