Lawn tractor accident kills man
A man was pronounced dead at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest after a Tuesday morning lawn tractor accident in Upper Saucon Township, the Lehigh County coroner’s office said.
Frank Deutsch, 73, of Emmaus, was fatally injured in the 5:51 a.m. accident in the 5500 block of Locust Valley Road, where the Locust Valley Golf Club is.
Operations resumed as usual at the club Wednesday, where Deutsch was a longtime employee. Club owner Robert Ashford acknowledged the accident took place but said he would not comment further out of respect for the family.
An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday. Upper Saucon Township police had no further details Wednesday and are still investigating the death.
