NC Tractor Accident Kills Boy

Fatal NC tractor accidents often involve children. A tractor accident in Lumberton, NC killed a five-year-old boy in early March 2012.

Lumberton Accident

The tractor was being driven by the child’s grandfather who was plowing a field north of Lumberton at the time the accident took place. The boy was riding the tractor with his grandfather around 10:30 in the morning when he fell off and was run over by the farm equipment.

NC Lawn Mower Accidents

Not only is agriculture the most dangerous line of work for employees, yard and farm equipment in NC are danger zones for children. Last summer a lawn mower accident killed a child. The ride-on lawn mower had a malfunction the user was not aware of. The malfunction caused the lawn mower to slip into gear, and while the rider moved an obstruction from the field, the lawn mower rolled over a three-year-old who had just taken a ride with the driver.
