Abstract
A 64 year old male farmer was killed when the tractor he had been operating rolled on to him. The victim completed his morning rounds on his farm when he apparently got off his tractor while on a steep slope. The victim walked in front of the tractor for an unknown reason. The tractor rolled forward, pushed the victim down and rolled over him. The victim was crushed by the weight of the tractor. The coroner estimated time of death at 7:00 am on Friday, June 3. The victim was found by his son on Sunday, June 5 at 11:40 pm.
