SPALDING, Neb. (AP) -- Central Nebraska corn farmer Tom Langer doesn't have to worry if he has friends out there.

About 25 of Langer's friends and neighbors from around Spalding came together Wednesday to harvest about 200 acres of his corn crops. KNLV radio in Ord reports that the outpouring of help came after Langer suffered serious injuries in a car crash 10 days earlier.

Officials say Langer was driving a pickup, following his father's tractor, when Langer was struck from behind by a car. The impact caused Langer's pickup to roll, severely injuring his left arm. Langer is hospitalized in Lincoln and is not expected to be released for at least a month.

Mark Carraher of Spalding told KNLV that he and his brother Matt Carraher are lifelong friends of Langer's and organized the harvest.
