The Cowlitz County Coroner’s Office on Thursday identified the 72-year-old man who died after his tractor flipped May 18 in Woodland.

Kenneth Cage, 72, of La Center died instantly of blunt force traumatic injuries to the head and chest, said Cowlitz Chief Deputy Coroner Brett Dundas.

Cage was mowing a lawn with a tractor while pulling a brush hog mower, Dundas said.

The Tractor “got away from him” and turned over on top of him, Dundas said.
