A 55-year-old man has died after being run over by a tractor in central Nebraska's Custer County.

Sargent Fire Chief Reece Jensen said that Dennis Seidel was killed Sunday afternoon.

Jensen reports that Seidel was refueling the tractor when he apparently hit the tractor's starter button. The tractor fired up, slipped into gear and ran over Seidel.

A funeral is scheduled for Friday.
