BERLIN, Ohio (AP) – A horse-drawn wagon has run over an animal park worker in Ohio’s Amish country and crashed, killing the worker and injuring nine passengers.

The Holmes County sheriff’s office says deputies were called to Rolling Ridge Ranch Animal Park in Berlin on Tuesday morning. It says Apple Creek resident Orley Miller was operating the wagon and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators say Miller stopped the wagon to let passengers feed nearby wildlife. They say Miller was leaning on the wagon’s safety rail, which broke and caused him to fall backward. The spooked horses then took off, and the wagon ran over him and struck a tree.

The sheriff’s office says the passengers suffered minor to moderate injuries and no horses were injured.

The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
