MONTEVIDEO (AP) - A man was killed when he tried to move from one hay rack to another during a birthday party hayride in western Minnesota.

A private group was being pulled by a tractor on two hay racks about 16 miles west of Willmar.

According to the Chippewa County Sheriff's Office, it happened about 7:45 p.m. Saturday about a half-mile south of Hwy. 40 in Woods Township.

The victim lived in the township. Authorities haven't released his identity.
