Warsaw man thrown from tractor in collision

Emergency crews were dispatched to a collision involving a farm tractor shortly before 10:00 Wednesday morning 4900 block of West County Road 200 North, in Harrison Township, in Kosciusko County.


The preliminary results of the investigation indicate that a pickup truck driven by Travis Heckaman, 35, of Plymouth, was behind the farm tractor driven by James Earl, 83, of Warsaw, prior to the collision; which occurred when Earl was reportedly turning onto his driveway from the shoulder of the roadway. The front right corner of the pickup struck the rear left wheel of the tractor


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