Another elderly man escaped serious injury yesterday morning (Wednesday) after being run over by a tractor.
Eighty-six-year-old Alex Dunn was using his tractor to farm on property off Highway 84 West and Searcy Road, but when he got off the tractor, he thought he put the emergency brake on, but didn't. At that point the tractor's gear slipped and ran over him.
The Bay Spring’s Fire Department was the first to respond, but called Dothan’s Fire Department for medical assistance.
Dunn suffered a broken pelvis and remains in Intensive Care at Flower's Hospital.
