A 12-year-old Pepperell boy who slipped on ice into the path of his family’s Bobcat tractor was hurt, but will survive, police said.
The boy was flown to Massachusetts General Hospital tonight where he was being treated for serious injuries, police said.
“A preliminary investigation indicates that the boy’s juvenile brother was operating the equipment at the time,” police said. “The victim slid on ice and fell into the path of the Bobcat, which was backing up at the time.”
The accident happened about 4:44 p.m. on North Street in Pepperell, police said.
The Massachusetts Departmental of Public Safety, which investigates accidents involving these types of industrial machines, is investigating, police said.
