Police are trying to figure out how a Flamborough man died in a field Monday evening.

Around 5:35 p.m., police and ambulance crews were called to a field in the area of Westover Road and Safari Road in Flamborough. An 81-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The collision reconstruction unit was called in, but police don’t yet know if the man died from a medical condition or from being hit by a tractor. He was working alone in his field when he died, police say.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday morning.

Anyone with information into the man’s death is asked to call police at 905-546-4753.
