Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) say a man is dead after a “farm-related” tractor incident in Brant County on Monday night.

Investigators say officers and local fire services were called out to an acreage at a St. George Road address north of Brantford, Ont., around 5 p.m. following a call about an operator falling under his tractor.

Detectives believe the operator stopped and exited his vehicle to unload cargo when the tractor began to move. In an attempted to re-enter the cab, the victim slid underneath the vehicle and later died at the scene.
