The crash occurred at 1:30 p.m. on Highway 10 in Auburndale. According to the Wood County Sheriff's Department, a 74-year-old man from Auburndale was going west on Highway 10 while pulling an empty gravity box, when his tractor was rear-ended by a car driven by a 55-year-old man from Plainfield.
The 74-year-old was later pronounced dead at Ministry St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield. The State Patrol says alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
Investigators are still trying to determine how fast each motorist was going.
