A Kendall man was injured while he was using a tractor to drag logs from behind his home.
Sheriff's Deputies say Lee A. Zarpentine was operating a tractor, which he was using to drag logs from the wooded area behind his home on W. Kendall Road. Zarpentine was pulling a large log up an incline when the end of log began to dig into the ground, causing the tractor to flip over. The 37-year-old was pinned underneath the tractor and trapped for about an hour.
A family member found Zarpentine and called 911. Zarpentine was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital where he is in satisfactory condition.
