Boy, pinned under tractor, injures leg in Jefferson Township accident

GUERNSEY COUNTY, Ohio -- A 15-year-old Guernsey County boy was life-flighted to an Akron hospital on Thursday afternoon after a tractor overturned on him in a field in Jefferson Township.

The boy was hauling hay bales with the tractor around 1:30 p.m. when the accident occurred.  The boy was pinned under the tractor when he was located by a relative, who called 9-1-1.  According to witnesses at the scene, the victim suffered injuries to his leg, which was most-likely broken.  Pine Tree Towing, Antrim Volunteer Fire Department EMS, Liberty EMS and United Ambulance responded to the scene, just off Bluesky Road, between Parker and Glenview Roads.  There is no word at this time on the condition of the teenaged victim.
