Mill Township man dies in tractor accident
By the Midland Daily News
The Midland County Sheriff's Office is investigating a tractor accident that claimed the life of a 44-year-old Mills Township man. The accident occurred on private property at 2035 E. Baker Road.
Evidence at the scene indicates the driver was using a 1950 Farmall tractor to drag downed trees out of the woods to cut up for firewood, the Midland County Sheriff's Office reported. The driver was traveling down the narrow trail when one of the trees he was dragging got caught on a live tree near the edge of the trail. This caused the tractor to flip over backward pinning the driver to the ground underneath it.
