A northwest Iowa man died after he was pinned under a farm tractor eight miles northwest of Rock Valley on Sunday. According to the Sioux County Sheriff’s office, 65-year-old Leo McDyer was using a farm tractor to haul a loader bucket of dirt when it appears the farm tractor started to slide on loose rocks and gravel.
The tractor rolled as it entered a small, wash-out gully. Authorities say McDyer was thrown from the tractor and pinned under it. The accident was reported about two o’clock Sunday afternoon when it was discovered by a friend staying at McDyer’s home.
