Thumb man dies in tractor accident on farm

VERONA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 34-year-old Bad Axe man was killed after apparently being run over by the tractor he had been riding.

Huron County sheriff's deputies found William Lubeski Tuesday in a farm field in Verona Township about 25 feet from the running tractor. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Sheriff Kelly Hanson says Lubeski might have accidentally put the tractor in gear as he was trying to get on or off or reach for something.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Thursday at Huron Medical Center.
