The Wood County Sheriff's Department says one person has died after an accident involving farm machinery Wednesday afternoon in Auburndale.

The crash happened at 1:30 p.m. in the westbound lane of U.S. Highway 10 near County Road K.

Investigators say a tractor hauling a trailer was on the shoulder of the road when it was rear-ended by another vehicle.

The operator of the tractor, Kenneth Brandl, 74, was ejected. He was pronounced dead at a Marshfield hospital.

Authorities say alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

The crash remains under investigation.

The westbound lanes of Highway 10 near the crash site were closed for several hours. A detour was in place. The road has since re-opened.
