Nebraska Man Injured in Atchison County Tractor Crash Monday

A Table Rock, Nebraska, man suffered injuries in an Atchison County crash Monday afternoon.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports the accident happened around 3:00 Monday afternoon on Route U, about five miles south of Rock Port, as 53-year-old Stephan F. Friedenthal drove his John Deere eastbound.

Troopers say Friedenthal went off the south side of the road, and the right tire of the tractor’s towed unit became disabled.

As a result, the towed unit turned onto its side.

The tractor ultimately came to a rest on the road.

Friedenthal suffered minor injuries and sought treatment at Fairfax Community Hospital.
