BOONSBORO - A worker for the Town of Boonsboro was injured Thursday when he was trapped under a tractor for more than 30 minutes.
Kenny Ashbaugh was mowing grass at around 7:45 a.m. with a tractor near a stream at a town pumping station on Md. 34, Debbie Smith, Boonsboro assistant town manager, said Thursday morning.
A stream embankment gave way, causing the tractor to flip over on top of Ashbaugh.
He was flown to Washington County Hospital by helicopter.
Town Manager John Kendall said he was relieved that Ashbaugh did not appear to be seriously injured, and said he was taken to the hospital as a "precautionary measure."
"Tests have been run; he's fine," Kendall said. "He has bruises and minor abrasions. He's going to be fine. He's lucky that he wasn't more seriously injured."
