Elderly Boulder County man run over by tractor dies

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say an elderly Boulder County man was found dead after he was run over by his tractor on his property, where he lives alone.

The Daily Camera reports the 87-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was found by his adult grandson on the property north of Longmont on Friday afternoon. Sheriff's Sgt. Andy Smith says the victim had been run over by the rear wheels of the tractor.

The man's family had dropped him off at home Thursday evening, and investigators believe he was run over Friday as he was standing beside the tractor and in front of the rear tire while the vehicle was in gear.
