An elderly man was killed in a farming accident Wednesday.

It happened on Smith Road in Johnston County.

Witness said the man was reportedly in his yard on a tractor when it flipped onto him. A neighbor said the man's wife ran to him for help.

That neighbor then pulled the tractor off the man, but it was too late.

The victim's name has not been released.
