Shepparton police Acting Sergeant Paul Shortis said the 73-year-old man was beside the tractor when the accident happened on the Bridge Rd property about 4pm.

Three friends were working on an older tractor on the farm when they jump-started the tractor and it lurched forward and ran over the man.

Police and paramedics were called and paramedics attempted to resuscitate the man for half an hour before he was pronounced dead.

Acting Sgt Shortis said the incident was being investigated and a report would be prepared for the coroner.

The Victorian WorkCover Authority is also making inquiries.
