Victim identified in fatal tractor accident near Ulen, Minn.

ULEN, Minn. – The Clay County Sheriff’s Office has identified a 24-year old man who died Tuesday when a tractor he was using to move snow rolled, trapping him.

Jake Fuglie of Ulen was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident a mile west of Ulen, Sheriff Bill Bergquist stated in a news release.

First responders were called to the scene at about noon and found Fuglie pinned under the tractor, not breathing. Another tractor was used to pull the tractor off him.

Fuglie was plowing snow in a driveway when he apparently tried to turn around and the tractor rolled off the edge of the driveway, the news release stated.

An autopsy will be performed in Ramsey County.
