SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

WNEM TV5 has learned more about a tractor accident that killed a man in Saginaw County.

The accident happened Saturday night on Bowman Dr. in Swan Creek Township. Sheriff's deputies were called to 3322 Bowman Dr. around 7 p.m. where they found 65-year-old Gary DeSander trapped under a tractor that had rolled over into a pond.

DeSander was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy showed he died from the crushing forces of the tractor rolling over and asphyxia. Authorities said the tractor was a "brush hog" type and it rolled into the pond as DeSander was working on the property.

According to the Associated Press, DeSander was born in Saginaw, graduated from Arthur Hill High School in 1964 and served in the Vietnam war.
