CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) — Two boys are suffering from severe head injuries after they were run over by their dad’s trailer.

Troopers say the 10 and 12-year-old boys were sitting on the front of a trailer attached to their father’s truck while he was doing some landscaping work on Saturday afternoon.

As the dad drove around a corner, the boys fell off and were run over by the back of the trailer.

The incident happened on Chatham Oaks Drive in Concord.

The boys were airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center. Officials have not given an update on their condition.
