SALINA, Kan. (KWCH) -- The Saline Co. Sheriff's Office released the name of a Tescott man killed in a weekend tractor accident.

Robert Minneman was killed Saturday when a tractor knocked him down and rolled over him in the 6200 block of N. Brookville Road, in Saline Co., the sheriff's office said.

According to the sheriff's office, the 66-year-old got off the tractor he was riding and had left it in neutral. As he stepped away from the vehicle, he noticed it was rolling backwards.

Minneman reportedly tried to jump back onto the tractor to stop it, but missed a step. The tractor ran him over and he died at the scene, the sheriff's office said.
