A convoy of farm vehicles was moving from one field to another when the tractor driven by Kurt Unger, 60, was struck as it pulled a grain cart across the tracks, said Cody Thomas, a patrol spokesman.
Unger was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash remains under investigation but doesn't appear intentional, Thomas said.
