ROME, Ga. (AP) -- Floyd County coroner's officials say a northwest Georgia man was killed when his tractor rolled over him during a farming accident.
Deputy Coroner Gene Proctor told the Rome News-Tribune that 70-year-old Franklin Ray Folsom was trying to jump-start his tractor when it began running and rolled over him Monday afternoon.
Authorities say the tractor kept running and crashed through a fence before stopping in a wooded area.
Proctor says Folsom was the father of a fire department captain and the grandfather of a Floyd County Police Department patrolman.
