PLEASANTON, Neb. (AP) – A California man has been injured in a farm accident northwest of Pleasanton in central Nebraska.
The Kearney Hub reports (http://bit.ly/N3rpMX ) that paramedics were sent to the farm about 3:35 p.m. Tuesday.
Buffalo County Sheriff Neil Miller says 49-year-old Michael Roth, of Highland, Calif., was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney for treatment of broken ribs.
Miller says Roth was helping Jerome Eckhout in a field. Roth fell as he was walking behind a tractor driven by Eckhout. Miller says Eckhout didn’t see Roth fall and didn’t see him when he backed the tractor over him.
