A Gilbert man was crushed and killed by a tractor just south of the Elgin community in Pleasant Hill on Friday afternoon, May 17.
James Paul Staehr, 72, died in the accident in the 3600 block of Kershaw Camden Highway at about 2 p.m., said Lancaster County Coroner Mike Morris. The accident scene is near the Pleasant Hill area.
Morris did not release Staehr’s name until Saturday when his family had been notified.
The accident happened minutes after Staehr had finished plowing a field located off the road and in a pasture.
