MENNO - A Menno man died when he was crushed under his tractor Saturday.

Roger Mensch, 70, a lifelong Menno resident, was pronounced dead at the scene after his Farmall tractor rolled while he was loading recently trimmed branches into a pile. The incident occurred at approximately 3:14 p.m. at 420 Water St. in Menno.

According to Hutchinson County Coroner Roger Simonsen, Mensch's older model tractor did not have a roll bar. Simonsen said the victim's girlfriend found him and contacted authorities.

Simonsen said the rollover was an accident and no suspicious activity occurred.

Simonsen said the Menno Fire Department and Menno Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene.
