The owner of a popular farm in Woodbury was seriously hurt when his John Deere tractor was involved in a crash on Wednesday.

Daniel Logue, the owner of the Logue Farm on Artillery Road, suffered serious injuries.

Thursday afternoon, his family told Channel 3 that he was in stable condition.

Logue Farm, a family run business has been around for 113 years in Woodbury.

"We have a picture of him milking at 3-years-old, sitting on a stool, milking the cow by hand," said Ashley Logue, Daniel's daughter.

Ashley showed Channel 3 the John Deere her father was driving when he was heading down the road to plant pumpkins.

"This hopper is for pumpkins while you rotate them out and plant," said Ashley.

Around 5:20 p.m., a truck driven by Barjam Hoxha, of Woodbury, was driving southwest on Route 6 near the intersection of Quassapaug Road, according to state police.

The John Deere, driven by Logue, was traveling northwest on Quassapaug Road.

Logue attempted to cross the intersection of Route 6 when he collided with Hoxha’s truck, state police said.

"I know my father looked both ways and started going," said Ashley.

He was thrown from the tractor.

Both drivers were brought to Waterbury Hospital for treatment.

Daniel's family said he has a head injury and fractured ribs.

The Logue family has been getting a lot of support from the community.

"We couldn't be more thankful for our friends and family, and I know my dad has helped out a lot of you guys and really helps that you're there to help him," said Ashley.

Police are still investigating the accident.
