Man killed in tractor accident in Merrill

Lincoln County, Wis. (WAOW) -- A man was pinned under a tractor and killed Monday in Merrill, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.

In a press release sent early Tuesday morning, they say they responded to a call of a man pinned under a tractor around 4 in the afternoon Monday.

First responders found the man, 46, pinned under a tractor and got him out right away. They did attempt life saving measures, but weren't able to save the man's life.

The Sheriff's Office says their preliminary report shows the man was trying to help a truck that was stuck in a field. They say as he was attempting to get the truck out, the tractor turned over, pinning him underneath it.

The incident remains under investigation.

The name of the victim will be released early Wednesday morning, after notification of the family.
