Two People Die After Being Crushed By Tractor

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — Two people are dead following a tragic rollover accident involving a tractor over the weekend.

The California Highway Patrol says 42-year-old John Miller was towing 46-year-old Wendy Jenkins´ vehicle with a tractor on Calaveras Road Saturday night.

Reports indicate that as the tractor ascended a steep mud road, Jenkins´ vehicle lost traction and began sliding backward, pulling the tractor with it.

She hit a steep embankment causing the tractor to hit her vehicle and overturn. Miller was ejected before the tractor he was driving rolled over him, causing fatal injuries.

Jenkins was also ejected when the vehicles went down an embankment and rolled over her. The CHP says the incident is still under investigation.
