LANCASTER, S.C. (AP) - A 72-year-old man from Gilbert has died after he was crushed by is tractor after he plowed a field in Lancaster County.

Coroner Mike Morris says James Staehr was alone Friday afternoon when he was crushed.

Morris says Staehr was trying to load the tractor on to a trailer when it slipped off and pinned him underneath.

The coroner says the tractor was still attached to the plow, and likely was too heavy in the back, causing it to fall over.
