MATHIS, Texas (AP) — A tractor accident in South Texas has left a man dead after the vehicle flipped and pinned him as he tried to pull out some stumps.

Mathis police say the accident happened Tuesday night on a vacant lot.

Police Chief Gerald Arismendez says the victim hooked a chain to the back of the tractor and to a stump. The front wheels popped up and the tractor overturned during the process of trying to pull out the stump.

Arismendez says the man was dead at the scene. His name wasn’t immediately released.

Mathis is 25 miles northwest of Corpus Christi.
