HERMAN, Wis. (WBAY) - Update: The sheriff's office corrected the location to County Hwy FF

A 30-year-old man was injured in a farm accident in northcentral Sheboygan County Thursday.

The sheriff's office says the man suffered serious injuries after his clothing was caught in a piece of farm equipment known as a PTO. The PTO, or power takeoff, spins to transfer power from tractors to farm implements.
