EXETER TOWNSHIP (AP) — Authorities say an 88-year-old man has died after a tractor rolled onto him while he was cutting grass in southeastern Michigan.

Michigan State Police say James Adam was found under the tractor on Sunday evening in Monroe County’s Exeter Township, about 35 miles southwest of Detroit.

An investigation found that Adam made a turn before the tractor overturned in a ditch. Neighbors rushed to help, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
