Elderly Florida man dies after being run over by tractor

An 85-year-old Florida man died after a tractor he was attempting to use ran over him and pinned him down.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office says James Gordon Jr. was pronounced dead at a hospital after Thursday's accident.

Authorities say Gordon had gone out to his barn to start the tractor, but it was already in gear and lurched forward.

The tractor ran him over, pinning him under a front tire.
