HILLSDALE (WWJ) – Authorities in southern Michigan say a 39-year-old man was killed while trying to use a pickup truck to pull a bulldozer out of a field where it was stuck.

The Hillsdale County sheriff’s department says the accident happened Friday afternoon in Hillsdale Township.

The department says in a statement that Adam T. Ladd of Hillsdale Township was operating the bulldozer and got it stuck. It says he called a family member for help in extricating the bulldozer.

A strap was hooked up between the truck and bulldozer, but a ball on the back of the truck broke and struck Ladd. The department says he died at the scene.
