An Edgerton man was killed when he was run over by a bulldozer on Sunday, an incident police are calling a “tragic accident.”

At about 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, the Rock County Sheriff’s Office, Milton police, and Janesville and Milton Fire and EMS, responded to the 8200 block of North Bowers Lake Road in the town of Milton for a report of a man who was run over by a bulldozer.

Upon arrival, they found the 30-year-old man unresponsive with no signs of life, and lifesaving measures could not save him, Rock County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Pete Falk said in a statement.
