Farm accident kills 92-year-old man in Rockland

ROCKLAND, Wis. (AP) — A 92-year-old man has been killed in a farm accident in Rockland.

The La Crosse County sheriff's department says an 82-year-old man was backing up a tractor to attach a brush mower. The older man was helping connect them.

However, the driver's foot slipped from the clutch while in reverse and the tractor ran over the victim. He was pronounced dead at the scene about 2 p.m. Wednesday.

The name of the victim is being withheld pending notification of relatives.
