POWHATAN, VA (WWBT) -

A Powhatan man injured in an agricultural accident Saturday suffered non-life-threatening injuries after his clothing snagged on the auger he was using, pulling him into the machinery.

Powhatan fire crews responded to the 1800 block of Capeway Road around 4:30 p.m. Saturday for the incident.


The injured man, not identified by authorities, was already free of the machinery by the time help arrived, but his injuries were serious enough for him to be airlifted to a hospital for treatment.
