Brodhead man killed when farm tractor overturns


BRODHEAD, Wis. (AP) -- A 28-year-old man has died after a farm tractor he was driving overturned in the southern Wisconsin town of Brodhhead.

Police say officers were called to a Brodhead intersection just before 4 a.m. Thursday. An initial investigation found the tractor left the road, hit a parked vehicle and flipped.

Patrick Holland of Brodhead was trapped beneath the tractor. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

About 20 gallons of fuel oil leaked from the tractor, but there's no indication any fuel entered the city sewer system.

The Brodhead Police Department and the Wisconsin State Patrol are investigating the death.
