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.
