Wood County Man Killed in Tractor vs. Car Crash

Thursday, November 14th, 2013 -- 8:53 AM

-(WDLB) A Wood County man was killed yesterday, when the tractor he was operating was hit from behind by another motorist.

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.
