Man killed in tractor mishap

By Ken Hupp - 67AM KPUA News

A Puna man has died from injuries suffered when a tractor he was operating fell off a cliff and into a stream off Kaiwiki Road in Wainaku Wednesday morning. Police say 25-year-old Jose Luiz Hernandez-Miranda of Kea`au was operating a Ford tractor on a farm on Mailekea Road around 11:30 a.m. when he got too close to the edge of the 12-foot cliff above a stream and fell into the stream with the tractor.

Fire rescue personnel pulled him from the water and transported him to Hilo Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 12:30 p.m.

Because the accident occurred on private property, Hernandez-Mirandas death will not be included in the Police Departments official traffic death count.
