      Salem man dies in tractor accident at winery

      SALEM, Ore. (AP) Authorities say a worker has died in a tractor accident at an Oregon winery.

      Sgt. Michael Holsapple of the Polk County sheriff's office says Ramiro Ruiz-Solis fell off a tractor pulling a sprayer Tuesday at Left Coast Cellars in Rickreall.

      He'd gotten off the tractor to retrieve his hat, which had flown off.

      Holsapple says Ruiz-Solis apparently forgot to fasten his safety belt when he back on. He fell off and hit his head on the pavement.

      Holsapple told the Statesman Journal (shttp://is.gd/USoN1z) that Ruiz-Solis was the father of two children.
