Man injured in tractor accident

 

An Algoma Township man was seriously injured Wednesday, when his legs became pinned under a tractor tire.

According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, Bruce Hoorn, 67, was cutting down a tree next to his home, in the 2000 block of 14 Mile Road, about 3 p.m. September 23, when the accident occurred. Police said he pre-cut the tree with a chainsaw, then attached a chain from his tractor bucket to the tree, and began to pull the tree away from his home.

The tree began falling toward his tractor, so he jumped out of the tractor while it was still rolling backwards, and his legs were pinned under the rear tractor tire.

His wife was able to move the tractor and free his legs.

Hoorn was transported to Butterworth Hospital with serious injuries.
