04/15/2019

(KAIR)--An Atchison man required hospital treatment following a Monday evening lawn mowing accident near Atchison’s River Road.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson told MSC News it happened in the 300 block of North Terrace when a tractor slipped off the edge of the yard and over the embankment toward River Road.

The man, identified as Rick Berger, landed in the wooded area west of River Road, but was conscious and talking when first responders arrived around 7:15.

Atchison Fire Chief Ted Graf told MSC News Berger was transported from the scene to the Atchison Hospital, and was expected to be flown to a Kansas City hospital for treatment.

As of late Tuesday morning, Berger remained hospitalized in Kansas City, listed in fair condition at the University of Kansas Hospital.
