YORK COUNTY, Pa. — Update, Sept. 12:  The York County Coroner has confirmed that Stephen Stiles, 47, died after he was found pinned under a tractor.

The coroner's office was dispatched to the scene at 8:09 p.m. on Sept. 10 and discovered Stiles underneath a hydrostatic tractor on his property.

It is not known exactly when the incident occurred, but Stiles was seen about an hour before being found on the ground, according to the coroner's office.

Reports stated that Stiles was believed to have been cutting a swale in the ground for rainwater to run off until the tractor became too close to the edge and began to slide. 

Officials have reason to believe that the tractor then rolled before coming to a stop on top of Stiles, who was located at the bottom of the bank across from a cinder block wall.

Previous: Crews are currently at the scene of a fatal vehicle crash, according to York County Emergency Dispatch.

The crash reportedly occurred just before 8 p.m. on Sunday on the 1000 block of Renoll Lane in North Codorus Township.

Dispatchers confirmed that the York County Coroner's Office has been called to the scene of the crash.

The Northern York County Regional Police is assisting in the investigation.
