DARLINGTON, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say three people were hurt when a tractor crashed into spectators at a parade in southwestern Wisconsin.

The accident happened Sunday when the tractor rolled over into a crowd at the Canoe Festival parade in Darlington. Authorities say the tractor ran over two men after it was started by another person who didn't realize it was in gear.  The tractor then rolled up onto a float where another man was injured.  

Rural Medical director Bridget Schuchart says one person had significant injuries, but it is unclear whether they are life-threatening. She says another person had moderate injuries.
