Mother, son airlifted to hospital after riding mower accident

Posted: Updated:

DUNLAP, TN (WRCB) – A 41 year old mother and her 17 year old son were airlifted to Erlanger Medical Center on Thursday after they went over a 25 foot embankment after losing control of a riding mower.

Sheriff Ronnie Hitchcock said the accident happened on Herron Road when they failed to negotiate a curve.

The mother suffered a head injury and was unconscious when EMS personnel arrived on the scene.

The teen suffered a hip and back injury.

Both were transported to Erlanger by LifeForce.

Sheriff Hitchcock says that since a riding lawn mower is not considered an off-road vehicle, no charges will be filed.

The identities of the victims have not been released.
