A 50-year-old Oakwood man died Friday afternoon from injuries in an apparent tractor accident.

The man was operating a tractor on the Allen Road property when he apparently fell off, said Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks with the Hall County Sheriff’s Department.

“It appears that it ran over him,” Wilbanks said.

“The initial information that we’re getting is that the victim does not live at this location, but that he was there to perform property maintenance,” Wilbanks said.

A neighbor found the man and notified authorities. Foul play is not suspected.

The victim’s identity is being withheld pending notification of family.
