The Kewaunee County Sheriff's Office has released the name of the man involved in Saturday's deadly tractor accident.

Investigators announced on Tuesday morning that the victim of the accident is Joseph J. Stahl of Green Bay.

Also, the sheriff's office originally reported that power lines were involved in the accident. But investigators now say power lines were in the area, but were not part of the original accident.



A 54-year-old man driving a tractor died after the tractor rolled over early Saturday morning.

The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department said it responded to the area of Tonet Road north of County Road K for a report of a tractor on fire, with someone inside. It was also reported the tractor had rolled and was in the power lines.

Firefighters put the fire out and first responders had to use jaws of life to help the man out of the tractor.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. His name is being withheld until family is notified.

The investigation is ongoing.
