A 64-year-old Norfolk man was lifeflighted with serious injuries after a tractor rollover accident on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Stanton County Sheriff's Office.
The accident happened at about 5:20 p.m. on 566th Avenue about ¼ mile North of the Hwy 275/57 junction (Spurville).
The accident occurred when a southbound John Deere tractor, driven by Brian Brovont, left the county road and entered the west ditch, rolling down a steep embankment landing on its side.
"Brovont was extricated from the wreckage and flown directly from the scene by Life Net medical helicopter to a Sioux City, Iowa hospital," the press release stated. "Restraints were not in use and the tractor suffered severe damage."
Stanton Fire and Rescue and Stanton County Emergency Management also responded to the scene. Highway 275 was closed to traffic for about 20 minutes as the helicopter landed in the middle of the highway.
