An initial investigation revealed the man was operating the tractor on an elevated feed bunk off the roadway when part of the feed bunk wall collapsed, and the tractor had rolled onto its side. The man suffered fatal crushing injuries.

The Sauk City Fire Department, Sauk Prairie EMS and Sauk County Coroner’s Office assisted the Sauk County Sheriff’s Office on the scene Tuesday.
