KELLOGG, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota troopers say a 65-year-old man who was driving a tractor in Wabasha County has died after being rear-ended by another vehicle.

A St. Paul Pioneer Press report says Clyde Jorday of Kellogg was driving on U.S. 61 on Saturday morning when the collision happened. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle was an 18-year-old man from Harris. He was taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

Troopers say it's too early to say whether alcohol was a factor.
