The Story County Sheriff’s Department is looking into a farm accident Saturday that killed a Cambridge man and injured a girl. The name of the victim is identified as 42-year-old Noel Shepley.
Injured was his 9-year-old daughter Mallory Shepley. A passerby spotted the older model John Deere tractor overturned in a ditch and then notified sheriff’s deputies. Noel Shepley was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mallory Shepley was freed after being underneath the tractor. She was transported to Blank Children’s Hospital in Des Moines for further treatment. The accident remains under investigation.
