A Culpeper man was killed Sunday when his tractor flipped, pinned him under the frame and then caught on fire.

According to a neighbor, Mile Pillion, 55, was trying to pull a pine stump in front of his Cavalier Lane home (Chesterfield Estates) when his early 1950s Ferguson tractor reared against the weight and flipped over backwards.

The Culpeper County Volunteer Fire Department put out the fire.

The Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office investigated the accident.
