A man is in the hospital after a tractor accident on an Albemarle County farm.
Rescuers were called to a farm on Ragged Mountain Road shortly after 3:00 Thursday afternoon.
Officials say the tractor was left running and started moving without an operator at the wheel. The victim tried to stop it and the wheels ran over the man's chest.
His condition is not known, but the injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
