Three children and their mother were injured in a tractor accident last week in Custer, Washington. The children were riding on the tractor with a family friend when the vehicle hit a tree and flipped on top of them. The childrenâ€™s mother attempted to free them but became trapped under the tractor as well. The children were four, five and seven-years old. One child was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and the other two received treatment at St. Joseph Hospital in Bellingham.
