Two boys killed in farm truck accident

Two young boys were hit and killed in a farming accident in Kosciusko County.


Investigators say the Amish boys, just three and five years old, were playing in a field next to another field that had semi-trucks and combines bringing in the harvest. They say the boys had climbed through the fence separating the properties and wandered under a trailer attached to a semi that was full of 90-thousand pounds of corn.


The driver, Benjamin Sheets, started the truck up and started off when police say the trailer ran over the boys. The coroner says they died instantly.
