Tractor Hits Farm worker in Fresno

A farm worker operating a tractor was recently injured after he was run over by the vehicle near Sanger. The worker was airlifted to Community Regional Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries.

He is said to be the field crew boss and appeared to be in his 40s. His identity is yet to be released.

Reports show that the man was operating the tractor when he got off it while it is still in gear to get water. The tractor then rolled away as the man tried to chase it down. The man then slipped causing him to be run over by the tractor.

The man can file a claim for worker’s compensation as he was injured while on the job. If he does this, he waves his right to sue the company for the accident. Either way, the man can recover his medical expenses for his injuries.
