ASHLAND, Ohio -- An Ohio man has been crushed to death by a load of lumber when his horse-drawn trailer overturned in northeast Ohio's Ashland County.

The Ashland Times-Gazette reported 51-year-old Meno Yoder, of Polk, died in an accident that occurred around 5 p.m. Thursday on Ohio 89 in Jackson Township.

The State Highway Patrol said Yoder fell from the flatbed trailer after it left the roadway and a large load of lumber he was transporting fell on top of him.
