Report: Boat trailer runs over boy’s leg at Clark Center Park

A 13-year-old Knoxville boy was flown by air ambulance Sunday to the University of Tennessee Medical Center after a boat trailer reportedly ran over his right leg at Clark Center Park in Oak Ridge.

The boy had been standing on the right side of a trailer being towed by a pickup truck driven by Brian S. Graham of Knoxville, but the boy jumped off and fell before the boat trailer tires ran over his right leg, an Oak Ridge Police Department accident report said.

It said the boy had a possible compound leg fracture.

The boat was being towed at about 8:40 p.m. Sunday in the boat ramp area at the park.
