A Boyle County man was sent to the hospital with “significant injuries” after a tractor overturned on him about 1:50 p.m. Friday, according to Mike Wilder, director of Boyle County Emergency Management.
Wilder said he thought there was water in the tank.
The tank caused the tractor to flip over. The Boyle County Fire Department was able to lift the tractor off Cornelius, Wilder said.
Cornelius was conscious at the scene and was flown to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with significant injuries. As of Monday afternoon, Cornelius was listed in serious condition, according to UK Hospital.
Boyle County EMS and the Boyle County Sheriff’s Office assisted.
