Three people were sent to the hospital late Friday night after a tractor rolled into a ditch at Layman Family Farms in Bedford County.
Rescue crews were called to the farm around 10:30 p.m. Montvale fire chief Scott Hawkins said he was told six people were on a flatbed trailer hitched to a tractor when it rolled down a hill into a creek on the farm. He said there was no driver.
Hawkins said two people fell off the trailer and were pinned underneath it in the water, trapped by a tow bar .
He said the two women trapped and one other person were taken to Roanoke Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He said there were no charges pending. Nearly a dozen rescue units from the area responded.
Layman Farms was open Friday night as part of its Fall festivities, in which visitors can pick pumpkins, go on hayrides and explore a corn maze.
Witnesses at the scene said that after the incident happened, Layman Farms immediately closed and refunds were given to those who had not gone through the farm.
Dozens of people were reportedly there at the time of the accident.
