LAYTON — Police say a man had his ear ripped off and suffered other injuries when a tractor ran him over at a Smith's distribution center in Layton.

Robert Stone, 50, was walking through a work yard at the facility when he was hit by a machine that moves goods from a semitrailer onto a loading dock, the Standard-Examiner reported.

Layton Police Sgt. John Holden says Stone had a broken leg, a gash on the arm and a head injury in addition to his torn-off ear. He was taken by medical helicopter to Intermountain Medical Center in critical condition.

Holden said the incident was an accident and no charges will be filed.
