Name of victim released in fatal tractor accident

Harold Hagen

The name of the man who was killed Thursday morning in a tractor rollover accident near Callaway has been released.

Harold Curtis Hagen, 90, rural Callaway, died as the result of injuries sustained in the accident, which occurred early Thursday, July 23, on 245th Street near Callaway. He was found at the scene 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 Hagen 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.
