A Darlington resident operating a farm tractor was killed in a recent accident in Lafayette County involving a semi-truck, a January 15 report of Channel 3000 stated. According to investigators, deputies from the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Office were notified of a collision involving two vehicles on State Highway 81, just east of County Road O, at 5:35 on the evening of Thursday, January 14.

A 65-year-old man was reportedly driving a farm tractor west on Highway 81 when his vehicle was struck from behind by a semi-truck driven by a 45-year-old man. The tractor operator was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, while the driver of the semi-truck was transported to the hospital to receive treatment for the  minor injuries he sustained in the collision.

Aside from Lafayette County authorities, personnel from the Wisconsin State Patrol and Darlington fire and medical crews provided assistance in the crash scene. Vehicles on Highway 81 were momentarily rerouted for several hours while authorities conduct their investigations.
