Missouri Man Dies in Crash With Horse-Drawn Mower
SEYMOUR, Mo. (AP) - The driver of a pickup truck has died after he crashed into a horse-drawn Amish mower in southern Missouri. The Missouri State Highway Patrol identified the victim as 81-year-old William R. Pollock of Hartville.
The patrol says the collision happened Saturday morning as Pollock was attempting to pass the mower three miles north of Seymour on Route C. The crash caused Pollock's vehicle to leave the road before striking a fence and tree. He wasn't wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the horse-drawn mower was ejected and taken to a Springfield hospital.
