On Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 7:36 pm Sheriff’s deputies and German Township Fire Department medics responded to 4150 Kleitz Road after receiving a report that a man had been struck by a four-wheeler. Upon arrival deputies spoke to the victim, Mr. Robert Waters. Mr. Waters indicated that he had been measuring his property for a fence when his neighbor, Mr. Brad Wallace, ran over him with a four-wheeler.

Mr. Waters’ nose appeared broken and one of his fingers appeared nearly dismembered. Mr. Waters was transported by ambulance to Deaconess Hospital where he received treatment for his injuries.
