(Sallisaw-AP) -- A Sequoyah County man was killed Sunday when the tractor he was driving overturned and landed on top of him.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 60-year-old James Tabor was killed while clearing brush on his property about eight miles north of Muldrow.
His tractor hit a stump about 3-feet-tall and the tractor reared up and rolled onto Tabor.
Tabor was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers say the accident was reported at about 5:35 last night, but they aren't sure when the accident actually occurred.
Muldrow firefighters had to use a wench to free Tabor.
