One person was killed in a Grundy County farming incident over the weekend.

Grundy County Coroner John Callahan said Michael Perino, 69, of Braceville was found on the ground next to his tractor around 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 3rd. 

Callahan said preliminary investigation indicates Perino may have been working on his tractor to get it started when the incident occurred. It appears the tractor rolled or lunged forward going over the top of Perino who died at the scene.

The incident remains under investigation by Callahan’s Office.  The Gardner and Braceville Fire Departments assisted at the scene.
