A 58-year-old man died Sunday after he was ejected from his tractor and run over by it in unincorporated San Mateo County south of Portola Valley, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The incident was reported around 5:30 p.m. at 9645 Alpine Road where neighbors had also reported to the scene and tried to give the man CPR, according to the CHP.

The man was apparently driving the John Deere Tractor along steep and uneven terrain when it overturned and ejected him, officers said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene when paramedics arrived.
