Fatal tractor accident

A Saginaw man has died, found trapped beneath the wheels of a tractor.

Michigan State Police were called to a field near Pierce and Center in Saginaw County at around 7:05 p.m. on Dec. 11.

Investigators said it appears 69-year-old Thomas Knoerr was tilling the field, and may have been trying to get his tractor unstuck when he was run over.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
