Trac­tor strikes, kills 60-year-old man

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Jesse Paul

A 60-year-old Ohio man was killed Mon­day when he was fa­tally struck by a trac­tor on a snow-packed pri­vate drive­way in Garfield County.

Terry Stout of Akron was pro­nounced dead at the scene. The crash hap­pened about 5 p.m. Mon­day as Stout and his brother were trav­el­ing to a res­i­dence on their ranch off Baldy Creek Road in New Cas­tle. The pair crashed a ve­hi­cle on the steep drive­way, at which point he got out on foot and started walk­ing to­ward the home.

“At the same time, an em­ployee of the ranch was trav­el­ing down the drive in the ranch-owned trac­tor to as­sist the dece­dent and his brother,” the county coro­ner’s of­fice said. “When the two met on the pri­vate drive, the ranch em­ployee at­tempted to stop the trac­tor and was un­suc­cess­ful due to the grade of the drive­way and the snowy con­di­tions of the drive­way.”

Stout wasn’t able to get out of the way in time.
