A Janesville woman was killed Sunday afternoon when her rider lawnmower tipped over trapping her beneath it.

The Rock County Sheriff's Office told the Wisconsin State Journal they arrived to find the woman partially trapped under the mower.  She was not breathing and did not have a pulse.  She was freed and taken to the hospital where she later died.

Investigators believe the woman was driving the mower near a driveway that had a small culvert.  An incline caused the machine to overturn onto her.

The woman has not yet been identified.
