The incident occurred Thursday at approximately 5:03 PM at State Route 89 near County Road 620. The incident resulted in the death of an Amish man.

A horse-drawn flat-bed trailer, operated by Meno L. Yoder, age 51 of Polk, Ohio, was traveling southbound on State Route 89. The trailer was hauling a large stack of flat lumber.
