A Slater man suffered serious injuries Tuesday morning, March 30, when he was run over by a tractor, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.
Kenneth Vogl, 53, was taken by air ambulance to a Columbia hospital.
The accident occurred about 9:10 a.m. in a field near 2622 Poplar Ave. (formerly County Road 127).
Vogl apparently slipped while attempting to get on a 1974 Ford tractor while it was in gear, and it ran over his legs and abdomen, troopers said.
Vogl was able to get on the tractor and drive it home, where his wife called for an ambulance.
