Sylvan Township, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- An 86-year-old Brainerd, Minn., man died due to injuries he sustained from being pinned by a tractor.

The Cass County Sheriff's office reports that at around 6 p.m. on Tuesday they received a call that a man was pinned by a tractor in a shed at a home in Sylvan Township, Minn.

When authorities arrived they found the elderly man dead. The sheriff reports that the accident happened because the tractor rolled in reverse pinning the man against a 5th wheel trailer hitch.

An autopsy is scheduled for the man whose identity is being withheld until family members can be informed of the incident.
