Enon Valley man crushed by tractor

ENON VALLEY, Pa. – An Enon Valley man was killed Sunday evening in a tractor accident near here.

According to WKBN Channel 27, news partner of the Salem News’ sister paper the Morning Journal, Robert Mattocks III was logging along Mud Ridge Road just off State Line Road in Lawrence County.

WKBN quoted Pennsylvania state police that the 36-year-old man had two or three logs chained together. He was dragging them when they dug into the ground, bringing the tractor to a stop.

Mattocks’ foot was still on the gas, WKBN said, which caused the tractor to flip and land on Mattocks, crushing him to death.
