Oakes man killed in weekend farm accident

OAKES, N.D. (AP) — A weekend farm accident in southeast North Dakota killed a rural Oakes man.

Dickey County Sheriff Jim Bohannon says 87-year-old Henry Frojen was dragged by his pickup truck Sunday morning after he put it in reverse and then partially fell from the vehicle. The incident happened after Frojen had collided with a hay grinder.

A family member eventually was able to stop the pickup after Frojen had been dragged through a corn field. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
