One person was seriously injured during a tractor rollover accident this (Tuesday) morning, in Page County. Sheriff Lyle Palmer says they received a 9-1-1 call about the accident at around 9:30-a.m.  Emergency personnel responded to the scene in the 3200 block of 250th street, southeast of Clarinda. During an investigation, it was determined that 18-year old Nathan Keith Harvey, of Yorktown, was operating an International 856 wide front tractor with loader, when he attempted to drive the tractor on a bank over a tube in the road ditch from the field side.

The tractor, which did not have a cab or rollover protection, rolled once before coming to rest right side up in the bottom of the ditch, among the bank rip rap.  Harvey was transported to Clarinda Regional Health Center where he was being treated for his injuries.
