LAKE CITY, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a 16-year-old from Audubon has died in a tractor accident.

The Iowa State Patrol says the accident was discovered a little before 5:15 p.m. Wednesday about three miles southeast of Lake City.

The patrol says Austin Gosch was driving west on 390th Street when the tractor drifted left and entered the south roadside ditch. The tractor then rolled over and pinned the boy, who was pronounced dead at the scene. The accident is being investigated.

The patrol says Gosch had just finished his sophomore year at Audubon High School.
