A tractor crushes a local man after a John Deere G tipped backwards and upside down off of a flat bed trailer, trapping James E. Groeper, 77, underneath.
Peoria County Cororner Jamie Harwood says Groeper likely died instantly.
The tractor was removed to relieve Groeper from being entrapped from underneath.
Groeper suffered severe traumatic crush injuries, causing his death.
No autopsy is scheduled.
