KRAGNES, Minn. (AP) — We now know the name of the rural Georgetown man killed when the tractor he was driving rolled over in a ditch. The victim is 66-year-old Clayton Richards.

Clay County dispatchers received a call around 2:30 p.m. Saturday indicating that a tractor had rolled on top a man believed to be in his 70s, and that the people at the scene were unable to lift it off him.

Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist says first responders were sent from several communities in the area.

A medical helicopter from MeritCare Hospital in Fargo, N.D., was also called out, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
