By QCS Staff

A man from Bard was killed Monday morning in a tractor accident.

Daniel C. Taylor, 54, was killed when a large wooden beam he was trying to move became unbalanced and pinned him between the beam and a tractor, said Quay County Deputy Shane Strand.

Taylor was pronounced dead at 10:35 a.m. at the scene, Strand said.

Taylor had only lived in the area for about a year and a half, Strand said. Taylor had purchased an old hog farm at Bard and was in the process of fixing up the place, Strand said.
