Capt. Mike Rogers, with the Boyle County EMS, confirmed that the man had fallen off the tractor before being run over Thursday afternoon. He said he couldn’t provide any further information.

Boyle County Fire Chief Donnie Sexton said his department was not dispatched to the scene because the equipment, which he believed was a hay wagon behind the tractor, had cleared the injured man.

Boyle County EMS was the only agency to respond to the incident. The man’s condition was unknown as of press time.
