(SANTA CLAUS) - A Ferdinand man lost his life Saturday night in a single vehicle tractor accident northeast of Santa Claus.

60-year-old Charles W. Kuntz of Ferdinand was traveling west on County Road 1700 North, about a mile east of State Road 162, on a John Deere 4020 tractor.

For an unknown reason, the wheels of the tractor locked up, pulling the tractor to the left and off of the south side of the roadway. As the tractor veered off the roadway, it overturned and rolled over Kuntz.

Kuntz was pronounced dead at the scene. Spencer County dispatch was notified at 5:47 p.m. about the accident.

The Indiana State Police was contacted to investigate the fatal crash.

The Spencer County Sheriff's Department, Saint Meinrad and Santa Claus Police Department, Santa Claus Fire, and Spencer County EMS assisted at the scene.
