A Kettle Point farmhand escaped serious injury after his tractor overturned in Golden Creek.
Police, firefighters and paramedics from Lambton County were called to Kennedy line over the noon hour yesterday (Tuesday) and found the overturned tractor but no driver.
Constable John Reurink says OPP later learned the operator was taken by a family member to hospital in Strathroy with non-life threatening injuries.
He says the old tractor sustained a broken front axle which may have led to it rolling into the creek.
Diesel fuel leaked into the creek, but was contained.
The Ministries of Labour and Environment were called in to investigate the incident.
