(WOLO) Lancaster County,S.C., --

A 72 year old Gilbert man was killed Saturday in what authorities are calling a freak accident.

According to officials, James Staehr who was alone at the time had just finished plowing a field in Lancaster county. While trying to load the tractor onto his trailer, authorities say the heavy piece of equipment slipped off.

Staehr died after he was pinned underneath that tractor.
