CLEARWATER (AP) — A 50-year-old man and his 5-year-old grandson are dead after being pinned under a tractor in Wright County.

According to the county sheriff’s office, deputies received the call Friday at about 5:45 p.m. of a tractor that flipped into a ditch in Clearwater Township.

Both Ron Gustafson, of Monticello, and the boy Rollie Gustafson were killed.

The man’s son and the boy’s uncle, Roger Gustafson, said the boy and his sister had been living with their grandparents. He says his dad and nephew were always with each other, hand in hand.

He says his father was helping him put up a fence Friday. While Roger Gustafson was moving some machinery, his father and nephew went for a tractor ride.

A funeral for the two is set for Wednesday.
