Vintage tractor runs over pensioner
Monday 06 September 2010
A pensioner on a mobility scooter has been run over by a vintage tractor at a country show in Dorchester, police said.
The unattended vehicle was part of a static display at the Dorchester Showground when it started rolling down a hill, a spokesman for Dorset Police said.
It collided with the 72-year-old, from Weymouth, who became trapped under her scooter and the tractor.
She was freed by emergency services and taken to hospital with bruising to her left leg and upper left arm.
The owner of the tractor was not present at the time of the incident, officers said.
