ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Worth County farmer was sent to the hospital after his tractor was rear-ended and flipped along Cordele Road Thursday afternoon.
The driver of the tractor trailer is now charged with following too close. Seventy-five year old Culbert Newell told Dougherty County Police he never saw the tractor trailer that hit him. Investigators say one truck passed Newell, but when William Patterson's tractor trailer attempted to do the same near Batch Road he clipped the back of Newell's hay baler. It fishtailed, flipped, and skidded sideways on the highway.
"The tractors are fairly top heavy anyways and those trailers aren't light, they're farm equipment, and if it got to rocking and it started flipping of course the tractor's is going to follow behind," said Lt. Jason Hager, Dougherty County Police.
Newell was transported to Phoebe Putney Hospital with gashes on his arm and head. He's in good condition. The northbound lanes were closed and traffic was rerouted for about an hour while the mess was cleaned up.
