Posted: Updated:

The sheriff's office says the victim is Daniel Althoff, of Wyoming, Iowa.

--------------------------------------

Jones County Sheriffs say a 54-year-old man fell off a tractor around 10:24 a.m. in Wyoming, Iowa. 

When they arrived on scene, they say they found a man run over, and dragged 25 feet by a loaded grain cart hooked to a tractor. 

The victim was allegedly in between the grain cart, and tractor, loading corn when it started to move. A driver passing by saw what happened and called police.

A helicopter was requested to airlift the man to a hospital, but was stopped due to weather conditions. The victim has serious head and chest injuries. He was taken to St. Luke's Hospital.

The victim's name has not yet been released.
