Brief: Kenneth man killed in tractor rollover

KENNETH -- A rural Kenneth man is dead after the tractor he was driving tipped over and pinned him underneath.

Larry Ossenfort, 63, was hauling a hay bale on the front of a Farmall IH 560 tractor along the side of a hill when the incident happened.

The Rock County Sheriff's Office, along with the Hardwick, Kenneth and Luverne fire departments and Rock County Ambulance were paged at approximately 7:40 p.m. Friday to the scene, 1986 180th Ave., Kenneth.

According to a report from the sheriff's office, the grade of the hill or the weight of the strapped bale to the bucket caused the tractor to tip on its left side, rolling over Ossenfort and pinning him underneath.

Ossenfort died at the scene.
