CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A Cambridge man was killed in an accident at a South 11th Street business on Wednesday afternoon.

Unofficial reports say Sowers, who was the owner of the crane, was attempting to start up the vehicle, when it lurched forward, pinning Sowers underneath.

First responders arrived at the scene, at the former Total Rental Facility, in a matter of minutes following frantic 9-1-1 calls to dispatchers. Sowers was taken to Southeastern Med for treatment of unspecified injuries that resulted in his death.
