A farming accident has claimed the life of an elderly Geneva County man.
Officials say 78-year-old Ralph Butler of Hartford was working on his property, located off Geneva County Road 9 when he stopped his pick-up truck and got out.
However, the vehicle was still in gear and rolled backwards and ran over him.
A passer-by on the highway later saw what happened and notified authorities.
Butler was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials say the accident, which remains under investigation, could have happened as much as three hours before it was reported.
