A man who was driving a tractor is dead after the Georgia State Patrol said there was a crash involving a car in Catoosa County on Friday.

GSP said 80-year-old James Howard from Ringgold failed to yield while trying to turn onto Mount Vernon Road with his tractor and pulled out in front of a car.

Investigators said 23-year-old Shelly Payne's car hit the tractor's rear tire and bush hog, which caused it to flip and pin Howard underneath the tractor.

Howard died as a result and Payne wasn't hurt.
