A Kenton man was killed Monday evening when he struck the rear of a grain wagon on Ohio 67, about one mile west of Kenton.
According to a report from the Findlay Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Bruce Eddy, 64, was eastbound on Ohio 67 in a 2008 Dodge pickup truck, when he came upon a 1979 Ford Tractor pulling two grain wagons at 6:08 p.m. The tractor was being driven by Ashley Heil, 52, Kenton.
Eddy’s vehicle struck the rear of a grain wagon and went out of control. According to the report, it started to roll over before coming to rest on the north side of the roadway. Eddy was ejected from the truck and sustained fatal injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash remains under investigation.
Troopers were assisted by the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office, the Kenton Police Department, BKP EMS, the Kenton Fire Department and Lowery’s Towing.
