A tractor attempting to turn into a driveway in the town of Washington was struck by an oncoming vehicle Thursday afternoon, according to the Green County Sheriff’s Office.

The Green County Sheriff’s Office says the event occurred around 3 p.m. Thursday afternoon.

Officials said the operator of the vehicle, Larry J. Allen, of Monroe, was traveling south on County Road N when he collided with the tractor.

Authorities say Allen was taken to Monroe Clinic Emergency Room for injuries suffered in the crash, and his vehicle was towed from the scene. The tractor was damaged in the collision, but was driven from the scene according to the sheriff’s office.

Allen was cited on suspicion of possession of open intoxicants in a motor vehicle.
