OGLESBY (August 26, 2014) An Oglesby man who was run over Monday evening by a tractor he was working on was identified Tuesday as Cesar Rodriguez, 24.
Rodriguez was flown just after 5:30 p.m. Monday from the accident site off Jordan Road to Baylor Scott & White Hospital where he remained in undisclosed condition on Tuesday.
Rodriguez was lying under a farm tractor trying to get it started when the engine engaged and the tractor, which was left in gear, rolled over him, Chief Deputy Joe Blakley said Tuesday.
Gatesville Fire Chief Billy Vaden said when he arrived at the scene, Rodriguez was alert and talking with ambulance personnel as firefighters prepared a landing zone for a medical helicopter.
Vaden said Rodriguez was complaining of left side pain at the scene.
