Yorkville man dies when tractor rolls over

A Yorkville man died Wednesday shortly after 2 p.m. when a tractor he was operating rolled over on him in the 16000 block of Griswold Springs Road in unincorporated Plano, according to the Kendall County Sheriff's Office.

A sheriff's office spokesman identified the deceased as Dean Sleezer, 69, of Route 126.

The spokesman said foul play is not suspected and the incident appears to be an accident.

"From what we can tell the deceased was operating some kind of riding tractor and it rolled over on top of him and he succumbed to his injuries," the spokesman said.

The Kendall County Coroner's Office and Sandwich Fire Department responded to the scene along with sheriff's office personnel.
