NEW HAVEN — They came in single file on a recent Friday morning, marching across the road without regard for their safety, grinding traffic to a halt during the morning rush hour on Addison County’s busiest highway.

For several minutes, they waddled one by one across the pavement, without an ounce of haste in their step. When they all safely crossed, the traffic, by then backed up a dozen cars in each direction, resumed.

NEW HAVEN — The Addison County Fair and Field Days ended on a somber note Saturday evening when an elderly man was crushed by a wheel that detached from a tractor and flew into the crowd during the tractor pull.

Witnesses say as the tractor neared the end of the track, the left wheel broke away from the vehicle and rolled toward the crowd. The wheel struck a barrier made of cable and concrete, jumped about 10 feet in the air and landed on the elderly man, who has not been identified to the media.

Jarrod Ashley of Whiting was primping a female named Clarice to get her ready to compete in the natural color ewe judging the next morning.
