Paulding County man dies in tractor accident

GROVER HILL, Ohio — A Paulding County man died Saturday after his tractor rolled down a creek embankment while he was mowing a field, authorities said yesterday.

George Williamson, 78, of Haviland, was found along Prairie Creek near County Road 60 about 5:50 p.m. by a family member who had become concerned about his absence, the sheriff's department said.

Authorities said he was mowing a lane between the field and the creek when he apparently lost control of the tractor.
