An 11-year-old child from Lignite is recovering in a Minneapolis hospital after losing control of a tractor in northwestern North Dakota’s Burke County.

The Highway Patrol says the child was reaching to shift the tractor into another gear and lost control Monday night. The tractor rolled into the ditch off a rural dirt road and pinned the child beneath.

The patrol says the child suffered severe injuries but is recovering. Authorities did not identify the child.
