(KMOV) -- A man was killed Sunday in a farm equipment accident in Alhambra, Illinois.

The Madison County Sherrif's Office said a farmer was unloading corn from a combine into a grain truck at about 11:45 a.m. when the farmer moved the combine into reverse and hit 50-year-old Herbert Braundmeier with the rear tire.

Braundmeier suffered a fatal head injury and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police believe the incident to be an accident.

Police said the farmer did not know Braundmeier had moved behind the combine and could not see him.
