Around 5:30 Sunday evening, Highway 17 was closed in Beaufort County just south of Chocowinity for a helicopter landing.
That was to enable an Eastcare helicopter to land and transport a man who had sustained a serious head injury. Witnesses say the man and a friend were hauling logs in a field off Highway 17 when a cable on the tractor broke and hit the man in the head. Its unclear what condition the injured man is in. Highway 17 was now reopened about 30 minutes later.
