Greene County Coroner Gene Rush said an autopsy concluded a Holbrook man who was killed in an Oct. 6 automobile accident died of blunt force trauma to the head, torso and extremities.

Rush said James Pettit, 73, was pronounced dead at 12:13 p.m. following the accident that occurred on a farm on Jacobs Run Road in Center Township.

The accident occurred when the side-by-side utility vehicle Pettit was operating traveled down a hill and began to roll, Rush said.

Pettit was ejected from the vehicle and killed. There were no other people in the vehicle, Rush said.

The accident investigation continues as Rush’s office awaits toxicology reports.
