ELK GROVE, Wis. (AP) - Officials say an Amish man has died after he was run over by a horse-drawn manure spreader in the southern Wisconsin town of Elk Grove.

Lafayette County Sheriff Scott Pedley says in a statement that 22-year-old Amos King, of rural Cuba City, was driving the manure spreader Friday afternoon when he became entangled in the unit, was dragged, and was eventually run over by one of the spreader’s steel wheels.

WISC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1xj9hAP ) that King died at the scene.

On Friday morning in the same county, the sheriff’s office says, a 15-year-old driving an Amish buggy suffered severe injuries when a pickup truck rear-ended the buggy. The youth was airlifted to a Madison hospital. The horse suffered a broken leg and a veterinarian had to put it down.
