SERIOUS INJURY IN FARM TRACTOR ACCIDENT

 

It’s the time of year when the roads are full of farm equipment. An accident in Macoupin County reminds everyone to slow down and be cautious when driving near farm machinery.  A Bunker Hill man allegedly ran his vehicle into a farm tractor in Macoupin County Tuesday morning and suffered serious injuries. According to a report from the Illinois State Police, Ronald Bollinger, age 73, of Bunker Hill, was traveling on Route 159, about ¾ of a mile south of Bunker Hill around 9:10 a.m., when his pick-up allegedly ran into the rear of a Ford farm tractor that was pulling a spreader and attempting to turn right onto Moulton Road.  The driver of the farm tractor was not injured and said he saw dust fly up from Bollinger’s truck tires before he struck the tractor. Bollinger was taken to Alton Memorial Hospital. Bollinger was also charged with alleged failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and not wearing a seatbelt.
