JACKSON TOWNSHIP | A farmer told authorities he was struck by a vehicle that had been driving in his cornfield in the area of 700 North Old Suman Road.
The man said he noticed a cloud of dust in the field at 5:30 p.m. Friday and spotted a green older model Jeep.
He attempted to flag down the vehicle from a bridge on the northern end of his property, but the vehicle continued westbound on Old Suman Road and squeezed between him and the concrete guardrail, investigators said.
The landowner said the vehicle struck his left hand.
He told authorities he has had problems in the past with young people driving in his cornfields and estimated the vehicle caused $500 in damages to the corn Friday.
