ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A Ben Hill County man was killed when he was run over by his own tractor, near Luluville Road, off Hwy 129 North of Fitzgerald.

81-year old James Casper, a big Pecan farmer in the area, apparently fell off his tractor Friday afternoon and was run over by the tires.

He was airlifted to Macon Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The coroner says he died from internal injuries.
