A woman has lost both her legs and one of her arms in a nasty accident on a farm.

The 61-year-old was riding a tractor with a slasher attached when she was thrown from the vehicle.

The slasher then ran her over, causing life-threatening injuries.

The woman, who was alone at the property in Ballandean, in Queensland’s Southern Downs, was able to call the emergency services.

“She received significant multiple trauma to her limbs but was conscious and able to talk to paramedics, who were able to stabilise the lady,” Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman Stephen Johns told 7News.

“I’ve never seen or heard of anything like this. It’s just a miracle she had enough sense to be able to get onto that phone really quickly and get that help to her.

“Otherwise it would be an absolute tragedy here today.”

Queensland Police is investigating.
