A long time Logsden area man died Thursday afternoon after his ATV crashed up the hill behind his home at 6425 Logsden Road, about a half mile west of the Logsden Store. It was mentioned that James Smith was in an area where there was some tree falling work going on. A sheriff’s report indicates that Smith was aboard an ATV that was pulling a felled tree behind it when it rolled, pinning him under the ATV. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.
A family member told NewsLincolnCounty.com that James Smith loved hunting and fishing, and that he had been married to his wife Sharon for over a half century. They have three grown children. Smith, 76, had been retired from Georgia Pacific in Toledo for many years and so was able to help his wife on the rural Logsden mail route.
Memorial Services are pending.
