Two men were injured in an early Sunday morning tractor crash in the village of Norwalk.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Department says two tractors driven by Justin Luethe, 28, and Adam Schmitz, 26, both of the Norwalk area, were heading east on Highway 71 around 5:15 Sunday morning.  The front wheel of one tractor became entangled in the rear wheel of the other.  Both tractors went off the road and rolled over into a field, throwing the drivers off.

Luethe and Schmitz were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The crash is under investigation.
