Bureau County man dies after becoming pinned under tractor

Posted by wlpo on November 4, 2010

An accident involving an end loader killed a 70 year old man in rural Tiskilwa.

Bureau County Coroner Janice Wamhoff says Don Frasier was spreading gravel on his driveway using an end loader Tuesday afternoon.  She says Frasier apparently backed up too far, and the back wheels of his tractor became stuck on an embankment to a creek near the driveway.  The end loader rolled over, pinning Frasier beneath it.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.
