(Blue Earth, MN) – An Amboy man was hospitalized after a tractor rollover in Faribault County Monday.

The Faribault County Sheriff says Dennis Sonnabend, 77, was mowing a ditch on 240th Street at 343rd Avenue near Winnebago when his tractor rolled.

“Sonnabend pushed himself away from the tractor and was not landed on,” says the sheriff’s press release.

Sonnabend had left the scene of the rollover before deputies arrived, but the vehicle he was traveling in was stopped in Winnebago.  From there he was transported to United Hospital District in Blue Earth, then transferred to River’s Edge in St. Peter.
