Tractor strikes, kills 60-year-old man
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.
