DECORAH, Iowa (AP) - A 71-year-old man has been killed in an eastern Iowa tractor accident.

Passers-by noticed the overturned tractor around 2:20 p.m. Sunday in rural Decorah (deh-KOR’-uh) field and notified authorities. The Winneshiek (WIH’-neh-shihk) County Sheriff’s Department says it appears the tractor’s brakes gave out as it was going up a hill. Deputies say the tractor then slipped backward and flipped, trapping Raymond Ransom underneath.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
