CHESTERTOWN, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say a man who tried to cross a highway on his riding mower was hit by a tractor-trailer.

It happened about 6:30 a.m. Monday in Chestertown. Troopers say 57-year-old George Hummer of Chestertown was driving his mower when he tried to cross Md. 290 just north of the Md. 544 intersection and was hit by a tractor-trailer driven by 55-year-old John Short Jr. of Millington.

WBOC-TV reports that Hummer was flown the Shock Trauma in Baltimore with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Short was not injured.

The accident is under investigation.
