SAUK COUNTY (WKOW) — A Prairie du Sac man was crushed to death Tuesday after a feed bunk wall collapsed and rolled the tractor he was operating.

The Sauk County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Sauk City Fire Department, Sauk Prairie EMS and Sauk County Coroner’s Office. The name of the tractor operator is being withheld at this time.
