Joseph Phillip King, 28, suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening in the incident, which occurred about 4:41 p.m.

According to the State Patrol:

Anthony Wade Noetzelman, 32, of Parkers Prairie, was driving a 1976 Allis Chalmers tractor southbound on the west side of Highway 29 near milepost 87 when he struck King, who was walking.
