An Indiana County man was killed Tuesday evening when a tractor he was driving rolled down an embankment into a small stream and pinned him underneath it.

Randy David Fleming, 58, of Armstrong Township was pronounced dead of traumatic asphyxia at 7:28 p.m. by Chief Deputy Coroner Jerry Overman, who ruled the death accidental.

Fleming was mowing grass along a small stream on his farm when a 5-foot embankment gave way under the tractor, according to Overman's report.

State police from the Indiana barracks also investigated the incident.

James F. Ferguson Funeral Home in Blairsville will handle funeral arrangements.
