Jay man killed in farm accident

JAY, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Jay man was killed when he was run over by a tractor.

Troopers say 76-year-old Joel Gene Dearrington died in the accident Saturday afternoon.

Investigators say Dearrington was showing his wife how to operate the tractor when the clutch somehow released and he was run over by both the tractor and a brush hog. Dearrington was taken to a Grove hospital where he was pronounced dead.

His wife was not injured.
