Man injured in farming accident

FOOSLAND – A Sidney man remained hospitalized this morning with injuries he received in a farming accident Sunday.

Champaign County sheriff's Sgt. Dan Coile said preliminary information he received from a fellow deputy was that John E. Doorn, no age available, of Sidney was farming in the 400 block of County Road 3450 N sometime Sunday when he started to get off his tractor.

The machine slipped into gear and Doorn fell off, landing under the plow he was pulling.

Doorn was taken to Carle with injuries to his legs, arms, stomach and face, Coile said.

He was listed in fair condition this morning.
