Kosciusko County emergency crews were dispatched to a collision involving a farm tractor shortly before ten o’clock Wednesday morning October 13th in the 4900 block of West County Road 200 North.

The preliminary results of the investigation indicate that a pickup truck driven by 35-year-old Travis Heckaman of Plymouth was behind the farm tractor driven by 83-year-old James Earl of Warsaw prior to the collision.  The police investigation said the collision occurred when James Earl was reportedly turning onto his driveway from the shoulder of the roadway and Heckaman struck the tractor.

Earl was ejected from the tractor, as it slid from the roadway into his yard. Earl was transported by ambulance to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, with a complaint of back pain.

The incident causation remains under investigation.
