PERTH EAST — An 88-year-old man was killed while working on a tractor Nov. 10 in the Township of Perth East.
Perth County OPP say the man was pronounced dead at the Perth Line 43 address. Officers, paramedics and firefighters were called to the scene before 5 p.m.
Police say he was working on a tractor when another tractor rolled back against it. He sustained serious injuries and died.
A police investigation continues. The Ministry of Labour was also notified.
The deceased appears to be the 13th farm fatality in Ontario this year, and the second person to die in November after being struck by a tractor. A young girl was killed by a tractor as it backed up Nov. 7 in rural Woolwich Township.
