Jake Fuglie of Ulen was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident a mile west of Ulen, Sheriff Bill Bergquist stated in a news release.

First responders were called to the scene at about noon and found Fuglie pinned under the tractor, not breathing. Another tractor was used to pull the tractor off him.
