Caldwell man pinned under tractor, killed

CANYON COUNTY - The Canyon County Sheriff's Office is investigating a tractor accident that killed a 27-year-old Caldwell man Wednesday morning.

The incident happened at about 10 a.m., on Lowell Road  near the intersection of Chicken Dinner Road, southwest of Caldwell near the Ste. Chapelle winery.

Witnesses told officials that the farm tractor was west on Lowell and was moving a fruit conveyor from one field to another.

For reasons that the sheriff's office said are undetermined, the driver - Ismael Loera - lost control. The tractor rolled on its side, and Loera was pinned under one of the rear wheels.

Loera - the only person on the tractor - died at the scene.

Authorities said no other vehicles or people were involved.
