An autopsy was set on the body of a 71-year-old man who died when he fell off a tractor that was pulling a brush mower in Pennsylvania.

The Westmoreland County coroner's office says the victim is Anders Johnson, of Salem Township. Salem Township is located about 30 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Investigators say he was found at the scene about 7:20 p.m. and was pronounced dead when a deputy coroner arrived at the scene about an hour later.

The coroner's office expects the cause of Johnson's death won't be known until toxicology tests are run. Test results typically take several weeks to come back.

This death comes just days after another western Pennsylvania man died while using a tractor to collect firewood in Rockland Township.
