Man injured in farm tractor accident


An East Texas man was taken to a local hospital on Wednesday after he rolled a tractor.

It happened on FM 2661 between highways 64 and 31 west of Tyler around 11 Wednesday morning.

Cory Szitar was trimming tree limbs on the right-of-way. He was maneuvering on a hill when the tractor tipped over and rolled, landing upright on its wheels. A co-worker called 911 just after it happened. She said he didn't have anything visibly wrong with him.

"He was inside the tractor and when the ambulance went to get him, you know, they checked him out. But, he looked fine. No abrasions or anything on him that I could see," said Shannon Fowler, a co-worker.

Szitar was treated and released.
