The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a 72-year-old man died when a tractor he was driving on an embankment overturned.

The patrol says Lincoln E. Stone of Rogersville was mowing about a mile northeast of Fordland Sunday when his tractor overturned, ejecting him.

The accident happened sometime between noon and 5 p.m. Sunday, when Stone was found. He was dead at the scene.
