COMFREY - A Comfrey man, Melvin Simon, 85, was killed Thursday in a farm accident in Cottonwood County.

Simon was mowing weeds in a ditch along County Road 29 and 275th Street when the front wheel of the commercial tractor he was driving apparently went over a ledge, causing the mower to flip down the steep embankment and land on the driver.

The Cottonwood County Sheriff's Office received a call about the incident at 11:05 p.m. and Simon was pronounced dead by the county coroner.
