Pemberville man run over by tractor

BOWLING GREEN - A rural Pemberville man was hurt seriously Wednesday night when a tractor ran over him, according to the Wood County Sheriff's Office.

Robert H. Morelock, 78, was flown to University of Toledo Medical Center, the former Medical College of Ohio Hospital. No information was available last night on his condition, a hospital spokesman said.

Mr. Morelock had been mowing clover in a field along New Rochester Road in Freedom Township about 8:30 p.m. when he stopped to clear the cutter, deputies said.

A witness said Mr. Morelock was in front of the tractor's rear right wheel when he inadvertently put the tractor into gear. The tractor lurched forward, knocked him down, and ran him over.
