MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) - An 82-year-old Meriden farmer has died after being run over by his own tractor.

Police say 82-year-old David Bilger was apparently attempting to attach a trailer when the tractor somehow went into gear and struck him.

Police found Bilger on the ground Tuesday morning at Bilger Farms after responding to reports that a tractor was going in circles with nobody aboard.

Police say Bilger suffered severe head injuries. He was pronounced dead at MidState Medical Center.

And someone was just asking me the other day how to delete safety interlocks. I know older models don't have these, but it just goes to show that anything can happen even if you have hundreds of hours behind the wheel... that's terrible.
