RUSHSYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) - Authorities in west-central Ohio say an 18-month-old boy died after being crushed between a lawn mower and a pickup truck over the weekend.

Logan County Sheriff Randall Dodds tells the Bellefontaine Examiner that the accident occurred Sunday afternoon outside a home in the village of Rushsylvania.

Someone at the home reportedly had been trying to jump-start the lawnmower.

The child was rushed to a hospital but died.

Investigators interviewed his relatives but didn't immediately release the boy's name or other details about the accident.
