Man pinned under farm tractor, taken to hospital

HILLSDALE - A 73 year old man was taken to the hospital with internal injuries after becoming trapped under a farm tractor he was operating.

Sherrif's Deputies say Kenneth Rice of Churchtown was mowing the property at the Honey Dog Farm at 284 Rodman Road at around 10:30 Thursday morning when he climbed off the tractor to open a gate.

Police say the tractor then rolled over him pinning him under the axle of the the left side rear cutter deck, which was not under operation at the time.

Rice was taken to Albany Medical Center by helicopter to be treated for internal injuries.
