BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - A Volga, SD man has died in a train-tractor crash near Brookings.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says 71-year-old Stanley Hesby was traveling north in his tractor when a Dakota, Minnesota, and Eastern Railroad single locomotive struck the tractor about 12:35 p.m. Friday. The impact tore the tractor cab from the rear axle. Hesby was ejected and died. The train's driver and passenger were not hurt.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
