Man Dead After Being Trapped Under Tractor

STROUD TOWNSHIP — An elderly man from Monroe County is dead after apparently getting pinned under his tractor.

Officials said a mail carrier found the man dead Thursday afternoon in his garage along Learn Lane near Stroudsburg.

The coroner said it appears the 84-year-old man was attempting to load the 500-pound tractor onto a trailer when it flipped over, crushing him.

The victim’s name isn’t being released until an autopsy is done.

At this point, the Monroe County coroner said the death appears to be an accident.
