OGDENSBURG — An Ogdensburg farmer was taken by ambulance to Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center at 2:45 p.m. Monday after he was pinned between a tractor and a chopper head.

John H. Wilson, 78, was moving a hay pickup head at his farm at 4184 County Route 6 with a small tractor when the accident occurred.

According to state police, Mr. Wilson was standing on the back of a tractor driven by his son, Kenneth A., who was towing the chopping equipment. When Kenneth Wilson made a turn, the pickup head continued moving straight and pinned his father against the tractor. The equipment shifted again, and the elder Mr. Wilson was able to lie down while waiting for emergency personnel.

Mr. Wilson complained of pain on the right side of his back, but did not appear to have suffered life-threatening injuries.

Trooper John E. Arquitt is the investigating officer. No further details were available.
