90-year-old Callaway man dies in tractor rollover accident

A 90-year-old Callaway man died Thursday morning in a tractor rollover accident.

The incident occurred in rural Callaway along 245th Street. The victim, whose name is not being released by authorities pending notification of relatives, was found by Becker County Sheriff's deputies and Detroit Lakes EMS.

The victim apparently drove onto the shoulder area of the road near a culvert when the front wheel of the tractor collapsed the embankment. The tractor rolled down a ravine, trapping the victim underneath.

Evidence collected at the scene indicated that the accident took place one or two hours before a 911 call made by an individual renting the victim's land.
