An East Palestine man died Thursday from injuries sustained after a car hit the lawn mower he was riding in Beaver County earlier this week.

According to 21 WFMJ-TV, The Vindicator’s broadcast partner, police said Thomas Weisenberger, 47, was cutting what they believe was a grandparent’s yard Tuesday when he may have gone onto the road and was then hit by a car traveling on the wrong side of the road.

Weisenberger was flown to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, and South Beaver Township Police said the car’s driver, 18, was not injured, according to the TV station’s report.
