Western Pa. man, 71, dies driving tractor in brush

GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) — An autopsy was set on the body of a 71-year-old man who died when he fell off a tractor that was pulling a brush mower in western Pennsylvania.

The Westmoreland County coroner’s office says the victim is Anders Johnson, of Salem Township.

Investigators say he was found at the scene about 7:20 p.m. and was pronounced dead when a deputy coroner arrived at the scene about an hour later.

The coroner’s office expects the cause of Johnson’s death won’t be known until toxicology tests are run, which take several weeks.
