ST. GEORGE, Ga. – A 56-year-old man was killed Monday after getting caught under a tractor.

Deputies got a call around 12 p.m. in reference to a person who was ran over by a Bush Hog tractor off Highway 185.

They said Curtis Eugene Manucy was mowing the back part of his property at 11019 Hwy. 185 with an older Ford tractor when he fell off the tractor and got caught up under it.

Deputies said the tractor dragged Manucy onto the highway and then into a ditch, where it crashed into a tree.

Police said Manucy was a diabetic, so he might have had a seizure, causing him to fall off, or he may have gotten knocked off somehow.

Deputies said no foul play is suspected.
