Child critically injured following accident with farm tractor

Clementsvale, Nova Scotia – RCMP from Annapolis and Digby Counties were on scene last evening at an accident in Clementsvale. At approximately 6:50 p.m., a seven-year-old girl was critically injured when she was struck by a farm tractor. The operator of the tractor was mowing a hayfield with the tractor and did not see the girl. The hay in the field was approximately 3 feet high.

The girl sustained critical injuries and was transported by ambulance to a local medical clinic. She was then transported via LifeFlight for further medical treatment in Halifax.

Our thoughts are with the families during this difficult time.

The investigation is ongoing.
