A tractor flips on top of a man, pinning him underneath and sending him to the hospital.

It happened Monday afternoon on Drag Strip Road in Little Hocking.

Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks says 74 year old R. Richard Daniel was driving a tractor through a field.

Deputies aren't sure how it happened, but the tractor flipped on top on Daniel, pinning him underneath.

A passerby stopped and saw him under the tractor, and called for help. He was taken by helicopter to Grant Medical Center in Columbus as a precaution and is said to have non-life threatening injuries.
