SALINA, Kan. (SJ) -

Robert Minneman, 66, of Tescott, died Saturday morning after being run over by a tractor, Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan said.

Soldan said Minneman turned off an International 1066 Farmall tractor about 9:45 a.m. Saturday in the 6200 block of North Brookville Road and got off the vehicle. As he stepped away, he noticed it began to roll backward, as he had left it in neutral. Soldan said Minneman attempted to jump back on the tractor to stop it, missed a step and was run over by one of the tractor’s tires.

Minneman died at the scene of the accident, Soldan said.
