Man injured in lawn mower accident

A man was injured Monday when the riding lawnmower he was on tipped on an embankment and trapped him.

The man, whose name wasn’t released, was found beneath the mower around 2:30 p.m. on Vermont Street, authorities said.

They said he tried to turn into a driveway and instead tipped over. He suffered possible internal injuries from the weight of the mower. He was flown to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.

Further information wasn’t available Monday night.
