A Presidio man is dead after getting pinned underneath a tractor near Ellensburg, Washington.

The accident happened last week at the Olmstead Place State Park, about four miles east of Ellensburg.

Authorities say 80-year-old Robert Arce was trying to pull a stuck forklift off a yard with a tractor, when the tractor flipped on him.

Arce and his wife were volunteers helping the park get ready for the Threshing Bee and Antique Show.

No other injuries were reported.
