Tractor slide injures Adair Farmer

2013-03-18 - Purdy Community, Adair County, KY - Photo by Joe Collins.
The tractor involved in the Saturday afternoon, March 16, 2013 rescue
of an Adair County farmer came to a rest in the edge of a woods. The missing skid marks have led to the theory that the tractor may have flipped to its resting place, making the rest of the story all the more remarkable, with the farmer's ability to climb by himself up a steep hillside halfway to the place from which the helicopter carried him to Lexington. The steering wheel was flattened and the seat was dislodged and straw on the lift joints suggest a flip, as well. Equally remarkable is that the time between the accident and the time the driver was in air to treatment at one of the state's tertiary trauma centers was approximately one hour, a time so short it would have been unthinkable in Adair County just a few decades ago.
