Employee #1 was dismounting his tractor when he unintentionally placed his hand on the tractor gears which caused the tractor to move in reverse. Employee #1 became caught underneath the tractor as the tractor started moving. The tractor jackknifed with the attached spray rig causing the tractor to come to a halt, which prevented the tractor from running over Employee #1. Employee #1 was transported to a nearby hospital where he was admitted for unspecified fracture injuries.
