BRIDGEPORT — A Brewster man was in critical condition at a trauma center in Spokane this morning after he was pinned in a tractor accident Thursday afternoon.
Reynaldo Garcia-Garcia, 62, was driving a tractor at C&S Orchards at 131 Crane Orchard Road in Bridgeport at about 2:15 p.m. when he went over a steep bank backward, said Douglas County Undersheriff Don Culp.
He went down the bank about 100 feet, with the tractor rolling and pinned him to the ground, he said. He used his cell phone to call for help.
Garcia was transported to Three Rivers Hospital in Brewster, and then to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane with a collapsed lung, the undersheriff said.
