A Grand Rapids man was killed late Monday while working on a farm in Oceana County.

64 year old Gary Mills was killed when the tractor he was using to access other farm equipment flipped over.

The Oceana County Sheriffs Department told WZZM-13 News:

Mills was trying to expand a power take off shaft on a mower and had it chained to a tree and to the tractor in an attempt to pull it open. During this time, the tractor flipped over and Mills was killed in the incident.

The accident occurred at around 7:15 p.m. at the farm in the 4600 block of South 44th Street, just east of Stony Lake.
