STARLIGHT, Ind. (AP) - A preliminary cause of death for a member of the family that owns Joe Huber’s Family Farm and Restaurant shows he died of traumatic asphyxiation and drowning following a lawnmower accident.

Clark County Coroner Terry Conway said Tuesday the cause of death for Joe Huber III is preliminary pending the results of toxicology tests.

The 59-year-old Huber was found Monday pinned under his riding lawnmower in a pond on his southern Indiana property.

Joe Huber’s Family Farm and Restaurant outside Starlight, about 15 miles northwest of Louisville, Kentucky, has been a regional destination for families for more than 40 years. The restaurant seats more than 400 diners.

Huber’s father, Joe Huber Jr., died in 2008 after battling acute leukemia at age 74.
