TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A man was killed Saturday afternoon after he got trapped underneath a tractor.

The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office said a 52-year-old man was working in his garden on a Kubota tractor that did not have a rollover bar. They said the tractor slid down a slope covered in leaves and then rolled, trapping the man underneath it.

The sheriff’s office said his wife found him and called 911. Emergency crews responded to the 5900 block of SW David Rd. where the accident happened. Authorities later confirmed the man was killed in the accident.
