ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- A St. George man was crushed to death when the tractor he was loading onto a trailer tipped over and fell on him, police said.

Russel Walter was killed about 12:35 p.m. Wednesday in the accident at his home.

It took about an hour for equipment to arrive to lift the tractor off the driveway.

Preston Watts, a neighbor, said Walter was taking the old tractor to set up in front of his antique store in Hatch.
