John Deere Accident

The year was 1953. My Grandfather, Ed Jensen, had a fruit orchard in Yakima, Washington. He was picking apricots with my Father and stacking the crates of fruit on a trailer towed by a John Deere Lindeman Crawler. The tractor was between rows of trees with the motor idling. My sister, aged 5, hopped up on the steel tracks of the machine and was playing 'hopscotch'. I jumped onto the seat and started pulling levers just like I had seen my Grandpa do. The tractor began moving forward and my sister was thrown off the front of the track and the tractor went over her legs. The next thing I knew my Grandpa grabbed me and threw me off and jumped onto the seat. He stopped the tractor and backed it off of my sister. My Father picked her up and ran toward the house with her in his arms. I was running after him screaming that I was sorry. They took her to the hospital. Fortunately the earth was soft in the orchard and the tractor pressed her legs into the soil. She had some pretty severe lacerations which healed. She recovered but carries the scars of the accident to this day.
