GREENWOOD, Wis. (AP) -- A central Wisconsin man is dead after an accident on his farm.

The Clark County sheriff's office says 41-year-old Allen D. Hemann of rural Greenwood was killed when a skid-steer loader rolled over, trapping him inside.

Authorities say Hemann was operating the skid-steer while feeding cattle outside. The loader was on a slight grade when it rolled backward.

The coroner pronounced Hemann dead at the scene. The accident was reported about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday about six miles northwest of Greenwood.
