CALHOUN COUNTY — A western Iowa teen is dead following a rollover accident involving a tractor in Calhoun County.

The Iowa State Patrol says the accident happened Wednesday afternoon between 4:50 and 5:11 on 390th Street, about a half mile east of N-47.

Sixteen-year-old Austin Gosch of Audubon was driving a 1970 John Deere 4020 tractor when the tractor drifted left and the tires entered the ditch. The tractor tipped and overturned, trapping Gosch underneath.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gosch had recently completed his sophomore year at Audubon High School.

The investigation into the accident continues.
