MEDINA - A Town of Ridgeway man was seriously injured about 2:15 p.m. Wednesday when he fell from a tractor and was run over by the farm implement it was pulling, the Orleans County Sheriff's Office said.
David L. Jones, 65, of Lyndonville Road, was taken by Mercy Flight to Erie County Medical Center, Buffalo.
Sheriff's Sgt. G.T. Gunkler, who investigated, said Jones, was riding on the rear of a tractor operated by his son, Kevin, 27, in a field off the 10800 block of Palmer Road, when he slipped off and was caught up in a disc harrow, which is used for breaking up the ground.
