Man dies after tractor flips into river

A man died Sunday after emergency crews say his tractor flipped into the Kentucky River in Franklin County.

The Franklin County Emergency Management Director says the accident happened at 61-year-old Ren Heard's farm on Steele Branch Road.

Officials believe Heard was building a road to the river to help with the irrigation of his nursery, when his tractor flipped into the river.

Emergency crews say they found Heard's body inside the glass enclosure of the tractor.

Crews are back on the scene Monday trying to remove the tractor from the river.
