(AP) - A 79-year-old Norfolk man has been hospitalized after being rescued from beneath a tractor. The Norfolk Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1EnfFd2 ) that Longin Karel was pinned by the tractor after it was struck by a car around 8:30 a.m. Thursday on U.S. Highway 275, about nine miles east of Norfolk. Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger says the westbound tractor was pulling a mower when it was hit by the westbound car. The impact caused the tractor to tip over and trap Karel. Once freed, Karel was flown to a hospital in Sioux City, Iowa. Unger says the car driver, 21-year-old Erica Pilger, was taken to Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk for treatment of minor injuries. The accident is being investigated.
