Untimely Death, Cross Road, Westmoreland

On April 28, 2016 at approximately 2:30 P.M., 911 received a call reporting a man trapped under a tractor at a residence on Cross Road in Westmoreland.

Responding fire and rescue personnel determined the 80 year old man was deceased. The preliminary investigation revealed that the man was driving the tractor up a steep driveway when the tractor left the edge of the driveway and rolled off a rock ledge which was several feet high. The tractor made a complete roll and landed on its wheels trapping the man underneath. There is no reason to believe the man was under the influence of any substances, and it appears that this was an accidental incident. A family member discovered the man's body.

The New Hampshire State Police were assisted on scene by the Westmoreland Fire and Rescue Department, the Keene Fire and Rescue Department, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

The man's identity is being withheld pending notification of all family members.
