A man died after the tractor he was on rolled over Monday morning.

At 10:24 a.m., California Highway Patrol officers responded to 5376 Marybelle Lane in Shingle Springs. Javad Tayebi, 66, was ploughing his front yard in a tractor and had not been seen for about a half-hour, so his wife went to check on him, Officer Quinn Cuthbertson said. She found him underneath the upside-down tractor.

“He was crushed,” Cuthbertson said. “There was nothing anybody could have done.”

Because Tayebi was maintaining private property, it was not considered an industrial farm accident, and that made the CHP the reporting agency. Had it been classified as a farm accident then the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, better known as OSHA, could take over the investigation.

El Dorado County Fire, Cameron Park Fire, El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office and the CHP responded to the scene.

    A ROPS loop would have saved his life. It cost less than $1,000 to equip any tractor. Whether if the tractor was older or new, ROPS can be fitted onto his machine. Yes, we are sorry he is gone. For others who may find this article, read this info on ROPS ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roll_over_protection_structure It could really save a life of a loved one.
