A Deputy man was hospitalized Monday after being run over by his own tractor.

Robert Dart, 92, was attempting to jump-start his tractor around 11 a.m. when the incident occurred.

The tractor was apparently in gear, Jefferson County Sheriff John Wallace said, because when Dart fixed it, the tractor ran Dart over.

Dart received severe lacerations to both arms and one of his legs, Wallace said. He was airlifted from the scene to University of Louisville Hospital.
