1 dead, 1 injured when tractor rolls over


ERHARD, Minn. (AP) -- Otter Tail County sheriff's officials say one person was killed and another was injured in a tractor roll-over accident.

Deputies were called to a property on Highway 24 in Erhard about 6 p.m. Sunday and found a juvenile female and adult male pinned underneath the tractor. First responders and family members were able to lift the tractor off the victims. Fifty-three-year-old Dennis Kubitz was pronounced dead at the scene. The 8-year-old girl was taken to Lake Region Hospital in Fergus Falls.

Authorities say the tractor was being used to cut the grass and rolled when it entered a driveway ditch.
