PENDLETON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The coroner responded to a fatal incident involving a tractor in Anderson County on Thursday.

The crash happened along Parker Lane near Sandy Springs Road in Pendleton.

Dispatchers said EMS and Zion Fire Department responded to the scene.

Coroner Charlie Boseman said 73-year-old Denny Clark of Wells Road passed away between 2 and 3 p.m. due to the incident.

Clark was last seen a little after noon, and was found around 5:30 p.m. by a family member.

According to Boseman, it appeared that Clark had been on his property with the tractor when he may have lost control of it and then fell off the tractor before being run over by it.

Boseman said Clark had several health problems and had a heart bypass surgery in the past. The coroner says he'll be investigating if Clark had a heart attack and died before falling off the tractor, or if the tract running over him was the direct cause of death. 

An autopsy has been scheduled for Friday morning.
