According to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, at about 8:17 p.m., they were notified of a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of HWY 129 and Lincoln Rd.

Paul Adams, age 63 from Lancaster was operating a tractor, pulling a hay wagon on HWY 129. Adams was stopped in the southbound lane waiting for northbound traffic to pass so he could turn onto Lincoln Rd.
