KRAGNES, Minn. (AP) - A rural Kragnes man has died after the

tractor he was driving rolled over in a ditch in northwestern

Minnesota.

Clay County dispatchers received a call around 2:30 p.m.

Saturday indicating that a tractor had rolled on top a man believed

to be in his 70s, and that the people at the scene were unable to

lift it off him.

Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist says first responders were

sent from several communities in the area.

A medical helicopter from MeritCare Hospital in Fargo, N.D., was

also called out, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim's name was still being withheld Sunday.
