MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 53-year-old man was killed and an 8-year-old girl suffered minor injuries in a tractor accident on Sunday in northwestern Minnesota, authorities said.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Officer responded to a report of a tractor that rolled over at about 6 p.m. Sunday north of Fergus Falls. When authorities arrived, they found two people who had been pinned underneath the tractor.

Authorities said first responders and family members were able to get the tractor off the victims and remove them from the area. The man, identified as Dennis Kubitz, was pronounced dead at the scene. The girl was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
