MEDFORD, Wis. (WEAU)-- An Abbotsford man was killed in a tractor accident in Taylor County.

The Sheriff's Department says it was notified Friday afternoon that a tractor had rolled over on Larson Drive in the Town of Holway, Southwest of Medford.

Deputies say Allen Stange, 84, was using the tractor to remove brush. It appeared the tractor wheel had climbed up a nearby tree, causing the tractor to flip over, and pinning Stange underneath.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
