A western Nebraska man has been killed after a tractor ran over him.
Dead is 60-year-old Brad Cross, killed on his mother’s farm in the Panhandle.
The Banner County Sheriff’s Office reports Cross had crawled under the tractor, attempting to start it. He gave it a shot of starter fluid while the tractor was in gear. It started and ran over him.
The accident occurred Wednesday afternoon on the farm located along Nebraska Highway 88, about three miles west of Nebraska Highway 71.
