    According to a news release, the man and others were attempting to back the tractor off a trailer when the trailer moved and the tractor rolled over backwards while the victim was operating it.

    Witnesses on scene were able to use a skid steer to lift the tractor off of the man prior to arrival of first responders.

    Initially sent to Sauk Centre Hospital, the man was later transported by Life Link to the St. Cloud Hospital for treatment of his injuries.
