The 35-year-old Sag Harbor man who was fatally crushed by a tractor Tuesday morning in Amagansett was an enthusiastic and dedicated farm worker, said one of his supervisors.

According to reports, Joshua M. Levine, a market manager for Quail Hill Farm, was cleaning out a chicken shed barn at the time when he somehow became pinned under the rear wheels of a tractor. East Hampton town police are still investigating the incident.
