(HURON COUNTY) -- A 48-year old Kinde area man was killed after the tractor he was driving rolled on top of him. Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson says the incident took place Friday morning on Verona Road just south of Dobson Road in Bloomfield Township. Deputies say the victim, Gene Kubacki, somehow lost control of his 856 International Harvester tractor, which was pulling a gravity box wagon. A teenage operator of another tractor told authorities that the victim was behind him and gaining when he noticed the man lose control of the tractor. Kubacki was freed from beneath the tractor by Kinde and Port Hope fire personnel and a nearby farmer with a front-end loader. He was transported to Huron Medical Center in Bad Axe and later flown by helicopter to a Saginaw area hospital where he passed away from his injuries. An investigation continues.
