DAVIESS COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - One person is dead after an accident in Daviess County.

It happened just before 2:00 Monday afternoon near Elnora on County Road 1500 North.

Police say when they arrived on the scene, they found 69-year-old Darrell (Matt) Fish pinned between a UTV and a farm wagon.

Investigators say 71-year-old Nany Pearson was backing the vehicle so Fish could hook it to the wagon.

That is when she accidentally hit the gas instead of breaking, pinning Fish.

Fish was taken to the Daviess Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
