FORT PAYNE, Ala. (AP) -- A former state senator is recovering from a broken neck after falling from a tractor in northeast Alabama.

Reports say Lowell Barron of Fyffe fell from a tractor Saturday afternoon.

Barron was riding the tractor at a Fort Payne apartment complex when a tire went flat and he toppled over. He says he likely ran over a bottle or a piece of metal.

Barron fell into a ravine and says he broke his neck in multiple areas.

Barron was a Democratic chairman of the powerful Senate Rules Committee. He is now wearing a neck brace and will likely make a full recovery.
