Injured Toddler Should Make Full Recovery

An update to the story we brought you Wednesday, regarding the two-year old involved in the afternoon tractor accident. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office reported late Thursday afternoon that the child sustained facial fractures and a broken collar bone, but she is expected to make a full recovery.

The incident happened on Hickory Rd, in the Town of Byron. Preliminary investigation showed a tractor was being operated by a 38-year old female from Fond du Lac, when the tractor hit a bump in the road and caused the 2-year old child to fall off and was then struck by the tractor. The child was transported to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee by ThedaStar Helicopter. The woman and another child passenger were not injured.
