ALEXANDRIA - A farm accident claimed the life of a Douglas County man Friday, Nov. 11.

Ewald Wussow, 62, of Alexandria, was killed when he was run over by a combine driven by his brother, Donovan Wussow, 63, of Garfield, according to a news release from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

Donovan Wussow called 911 at 8:17 p.m. to report the accident, saying did not know his brother was in the cornfield near the combine while he was backing up the combine.

The field was northwest of Douglas County roads 5 and 6 in Leaf Valley Township.

The Leaf Valley First Responders and North Ambulance responded to the scene, but Ewald Wussow was dead. His body was transported to the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy, but the sheriff’s office said the case appears to be an accident.
