Man goes to the hospital after his tractor rolls on top of him

Posted: Updated:

MARTHA, Okla._A horrific tractor accident Thursday afternoon near Altus has left a man in the hospital.

The accident happened 2 miles north of Martha. Officials said a 65-year-old man was doing tractor work behind his farm house when he lost control of the tractor and it ended up rolling over his left hip and upper body. The tractor then began to circle the farm house, running into two other lawn tractors and pushing them in a ditch. The man, who was recovering from a recent liver transplant, was rushed to the hospital. A helicopter was on standby to take him to Oklahoma City.

At this hour there is no word on his condition.
