NEWTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Newton County woman is dead after being struck by a tractor Thursday morning.

The Newton County Coroner’s Office said 65-year-old Marcia Siegle, of Goodland, suffered massive chest and pelvis injuries.

Investigators said it appears Siegle’s husband was reversing a tractor out of the garage when he accidentally backed over her. They believe Siegle was cleaning snow off her vehicle at the time and Siegle’s husband was unable to see her.

Siegle was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation remains ongoing at this time.
