HILLSDALE – A man is hospitalized with internal injuries after a freak accident involving a tractor.
The accident happened around 10:30 Thursday morning at the Honey Dog Farm on Rodman Road.
Sheriff’s officials say Kenneth Rice, 73, of Churchtown climbed off the tractor to open a gated field – when the tractor began to roll towards him.
Rice was run over by the front tire and became wedged under the axle of the left side rear cutter deck – which was not running at the time.
He was airlifted to Albany Medical Center. At last check, he was in "fair" condition.
