A tractor fell 30 meters on wednesday and overturned several times: shortly after 5 p.M. A worker was working on a vineyard slope near mainberg (schweinfurt district), just above state road 2247. For reasons not yet known, he lost control of his single-axle tractor. But the man had the presence of mind to jump off before the work equipment toppled over completely.
Driver saves himself by jumping
The plane overshot several times over a long distance of about 30 meters, broke through the stone fence and finally landed on the state road. The safety rope to which the machine was attached was simply pulled down with it.

The fact that there was no car on the road at the time of the fall was bad luck. Due to the spillage of fuel, the recovery of the vehicle and the cleaning of the road, the state highway was closed for more than two hours. The tractor driver suffered bruises and sprains when he jumped from his machine and was taken to a hospital in schweinfurt by the ambulance service after initial treatment by the emergency doctor.
A breathalyzer test showed that the tractor driver was not under the influence of alcohol. Further investigations must now show how the accident occurred.
