Retired dairy farmer crushed by tractor

EVERSON, Wash. (AP) - Police in the northwest Washington community of Everson say a 79-year-old retired dairy farmer has died in a tractor accident.

Police Chief Dan MacPhee says officers arrived to find a large tractor belonging to Jake Tiemersma Jr. pressed up against a barn wall, still running.

The man's body was about 35 feet away. MacPhee says the tractor had rolled over him.

The Bellingham Herald reports that the Whatcom County medical examiner's office found no signs of foul play. The man suffered the fatal injuries on April 18.
