An elderly man from Rolfe died in a farm tractor accident late Wednesday afternoon.
The Pocahontas County Sheriff's Office was called to the scene northwest of Rolfe shortly after 3:50pm Wednesday. When deputies arrived on the scene, they determined that 83-year-old LeRoy Simonson had been operating a tractor, when an attachment to the loader came apart. The tractor then ran over the attachment, which caused Simonson to be ejected from the tractor. Simonson subsequently went under one of the rear wheels.
Simonson was pronounced dead at the scene by the Pocahontas County Medical Examiner. The Pocahontas County Sheriff's Office was assisted at the scene by the Rolfe Ambulance, and the Rolfe Fire Department.
