State Police in Herkimer were called to a Schuyler farm April 15 to investigate a farm accident.
Nicholas E. Crescenzo, 80, was conducting maintenance on a farm plow. The plow was being held up with a hydraulic line, which suddenly failed, resulting in the plow falling on Crescenzo.
Crescenzo was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Schuyler Fire Department also responded to the scene.
