Local man injured in tractor mishap

UPDATE: The victim was Joe Heady, 83, of Marion. He was flown to Vanderbilt Hospital. 

A Crittenden County man was seriously injured in a tractor accident shortly before 4pm today.

First responders immediately called for an air ambulance and the AirEvac helicopter landed in a field just off Ky. 1668 (Crittenden Springs Road) near where the accident happened. He was transported to a nearby trauma center.

Although it was not immediately clear how the accident happened, both tractor and victim were inside of a barn.

The Press has chosen to not name the victim until notice is properly made to his family.
