A 17-year-old was injured after the tractor he was operating rolled over.
The Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call just after 4:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon reporting an accident on Clay Hill Road, northeast of Decorah, involving a tractor pulling a wagon. The tractor and wagon entered the west ditch and rolled down a steep embankment pinning the 17-year-old driver in the wreckage.
The driver was removed from the tractor and airlifted from the scene to Gunderson Hospital in Lacrosse with non-life-threatening injuries.
The wreck remains under investigation, and Clay Hill Road is closed from Spruce Ridge Road to Sand Rock Road until the roadway is repaired and the damaged equipment can be removed.
The Decorah Fire Department, the Iowa State Patrol, Winneshiek Medical Center Ambulance and First Responders, Gundersen Air, the Winneshiek County Engineer’s Office, and Bill’s Towing also assisted at the scene.
