BELMONT — A 70-year-old New Hampshire man caused an hour long traffic back up when the tractor he was driving tipped over.
Police say the Gilford man suffered a minor head injury when his tractor rolled down a 30 foot embankment Friday afternoon.
The tractor left Fonzi’s Auto on Route 3 and authorities say it stopped just short of rolling into the heavy Friday afternoon traffic.
Responders say the tractor sustained heavy cab damage but emergency personnel were able to extract the operator.
Heavy rain is being looked at as a contributing factor in this accident. Loose soil affected the tractors traction in the work area which caused the tractor to get too close to the side slope.
