Man killed, run over by his own tractor

Posted: Updated:

A Mid-Michigan man is dead, run over by his own tractor.

It happened Tuesday afternoon at a home in Saginaw County’s Birch Run Township.

Sheriff’s deputies tell TV5 that 86-year-old Lloyd Opper was clearing his property when he stepped off the tractor, leaving it in neutral.

Somehow the tractor slipped into gear, and rolled into Opper. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
