PIQUA, Ohio (WDTN) – A Piqua man was killed Monday while mowing his lawn after a car hit him.
The accident happened in the 800 block of Sunset Drive around 2:30 p.m. Monday.
Piqua Police Chief Marty Grove told The Piqua Daily Call Robert McClannan, 71, was mowing his lawn with a push mower when a neighbor began backing out of his driveway, hitting McClannan.
Police say McClannan may have been making a turn and stepped into the driveway.
Piqua Fire Department medics were called to the scene and they asked a CareFlight helicopter to meet them at the American Legion landing zone next to the fire department. McClannan died before he could be placed aboard the helicopter.
