LEBANON, Ore. (AP) - The Linn County sheriff says his deputies are investigating a tractor accident that killed a 47-year-old Lebanon, Oregon, woman.

Sheriff Bruce Riley says Doris Jennings was working Tuesday afternoon with a 49-year-old man in an effort to remove an oak tree on private property. She had a chain attached to the tree and to the back of the tractor. The witness tells deputies that when the rear tractor tires started to spin, Jennings applied more throttle to the engine. That caused the front of the tractor to lift and flip over on top of her. She suffered severe head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
