A 13-year-old boy has been injured in a collision between a tractor and a semitrailer hauling grain in northern Iowa.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that the accident occurred around 10:15 a.m. Saturday a few miles west of Riceville on Iowa Highway 9.

Mitchell County sheriff’s deputy Jeff Huftalin says Cole Byrnes, of Riceville, was turning left off the highway into a field when his tractor was struck by the grain truck, which was trying to pass the tractor. Byrnes was taken to Mitchell County Regional Health Center in Osage.

Huftalin says charges probably will be filed against the truck driver.
