TALLMADGE TWP.,  MI (WHTC) - A 78-year-old Tallmadge Township man suffered critical injuries in a farming accident on his land just west of the Kent County line on Wednesday afternoon.

According to Ottawa County Sheriff's Sergeant John Wolffis, James McClurken was on his tractor when he stopped for a corn crib on acreage off of 2nd Avenue near Lake Michigan Drive. As he got out of his machine to inspect the situation, the tractor started to roll. Hoping to stop it, McClurken tried to get back onto the machine, but failed and fell underneath, with a rear wheel rolling over him. 

McClurken was taken to Spectrum-Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids for treatment. The incident remains under investigation.
