Tractor rolls, killing farmer

A 63-year-old northwest Ohio man was killed Tuesday after the tractor he was driving rolled, pinning him underneath.

Douglas Mack, of Ohio 34 southeast of Stryker, was using the Ford 869 tractor on a farm lane across from his home when it went over an embankment and rolled on its top in a small creek, according to a statement issued Wednesday by the Williams County Sheriff’s Office.

It said the call came in shortly before 5 p.m. and that Mack died at the scene.

He had last been seen by a family member about 2 p.m.
