A 71-year-old man is dead after police say he was crushed on his own tractor. 

It happened on Friday, Dec. 9 about 6:50 p.m. in the 5500 block of Forester Road in Forester Township.

The Sanilac County Sheriff’s Office said the Port Sanilac man was dragging a tree with a chain when the back blade struck an upright tree.

The back blade caused the upright tree to fall down on top of the man, pinning him between the tree and the wheel well of the tractor.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
