A 25-year-old man was run over by mowing equipment and killed Monday morning east of Yakima.
The man, who has not been identified, was driving a tractor with an attached mower in an orchard near the 8100 block of Bittner Road.
He apparently fell off the tractor in the path of the mowing equipment, according to the Yakima County Sheriff’s office.
Emergency responders were not able to revive him.
He was from the Cowiche area.
