TALLMADGE TWP. (AP) – Authorities say a 51-year-old man has died after being crushed by a tractor he was driving in Ottawa County.

The Grand Haven Tribune reports that Michael Van Dam of Marne died after the tractor rolled over on him Thursday night in Tallmadge Township, about 10 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

Police say he was towing a load of hay across a yard and lost control while descending a hill, causing the tractor to overturn.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
