Wisconsin Ag Connection - 11/07/2019
A 24-year-old Illinois man is dead after being run over by a tractor early Tuesday morning in southern Wisconsin.
According to the Rock County Sheriff's Department, Daniel DeRose Jr. was stepping off of a moving tractor when he slipped off a mud covered ladder and fell to the ground. He was then run over by the machine's rear tire.
The accident happened after 1:00 a.m. in a farm field.
Authorities say field conditions were so muddy that a few of the emergency vehicles got stuck attempting to get to the victim.
