Farm Tractor Hit By Tractor-Trailer on Eastern Shore

A serious accident involving a farm tractor and a tractor-trailer truck sent two people to the hospital Thursday, September 4, 2014. According to the delmarvanow, the accident happened on Route 13 on the Eastern Shore around 5 p.m.

A farm tractor, driven by an off-duty Northampton County Sheriff’s Office deputy,  was traveling southbound when a tractor-trailer hit him from behind. Both drivers were taken to the hospital, but it has been reported that the deputy’s injuries were severe.

Sadly, the deputy driving the farm tractor passed away on Saturday.

My deepest condolences and sympathies are extended to the family and to the loved ones of the victim. So many accidents like this could have been avoided had the at-fault driver simply been paying attention to the road or driving more carefully.
