When crews arrived on the scene, they found that 44-year-old Charles Bach of Coggon had been driving a tractor, with an implement behind, when he was hit from behind.  Authorities say the vehicle that struck the tractor and implement was a semi driven by 56-year-old Walter Grabau of Central City. Bach's tractor/implement had been traveling south on Troy Mills Road, north of the intersection of Rundell Road when the accident occurred.

Following the crash, the tractor and attached implement rolled, coming to rest on its top, on the road.
