Farmer Killed As Tractor Flips

WOODSTOCK, Ky. (AP) - A south-central Kentucky farmer is dead of injuries suffered when the tractor he was driving overturned.

Pulaski County Coroner Richard New says the accident occurred while 66-year-old Tommy Sutton was baling hay.

The coroner says at the time of the accident, Sutton was going up a small incline with a round bale of hay about four feet in the air when the hay's weight shifted and the tractor flipped.

New says Sutton died quickly from blunt force trauma, due to the tractor rolling over on him. The accident occurred around 5:20 p.m.
