TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a man has died after his tractor overturned northeast of Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the victim has been identified as 67-year-old Marty Garren. Shawnee County sheriff’s Sgt. Todd Stallbaumer says emergency crews found Garren trapped under the tractor Wednesday night.

Stallbaumer says the tractor was equipped with a front-loader and rear attachment. Garren was using it to level a sloped area when it rolled. Family members found Garren under the tractor upon returning and called for help. Garren was pronounced dead at the scene.
