Dunn County man killed in tractor accidentKILLDEER, N.D. - A 39-year-old Dunn County man died early Wednesday in a tractor accident.
Craig Skaar, Killdeer, was parking a 30-horsepower yard tractor in a Quonset at his residence when the accident occurred, Dunn County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Ron Krivoruchka said.
“Basically, he was dismounting from a tractor and got caught by a wheel and got driven over,” Krivoruchka said. “When the tractor stopped, it was resting on him.”
Skaar and his wife, Tanya, had recently bought a house near Stanley, where his family is from, his mother, Judy Skaar, said.
Craig Skaar was a co-owner of CR Autoglass & Accessories in Dickinson for nearly 12 years, his business partner, Randy Fournier, said.
