(BETHANY, Mo., AP) — A 51-year-old northwest Missouri man died after he was thrown from his tractor when it overturned on a state highway.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Max Courter, of Coffey, died in the accident Thursday afternoon on Missouri 13 south of Bethany.
The patrol says a drill being pulled by the tractor apparently began weaving, causing Courter to lose control of the tractor.
Courter was taken to Harrison County Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
