Iowa man dies in tractor accident

BELLEVUE, Iowa (AP) -- A 62-year-old man from eastern Iowa has died after authorities say a tractor and manure spreader that he was operating apparently rolled down a hill and overturned, striking him.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that Wayne Keiffer of rural Bellevue died Monday. Authorities say a co-worker found Keiffer's body. The co-worker was checking on Keiffer when he didn't come to work.

Jackson County sheriff's officials say the investigation into the farm accident continues.
