The Marathon County Sheriff's Department is identifying the woman killed in a farming accident in Stettin as 77-year-old Faye A. Reinhardt of Lincoln County.

The accident occurred during the loading of a heavy tractor onto a trailer. The husband of the victim was operating the tractor and the victim was standing between the trailer and the truck that the trailer was attached to. During the loading process, the trailer became uncoupled causing the trailer to shift out of position and pin Reinhardt between the front of the trailer and the back of the truck the trailer was attached to.

Reinhardt was transported via helicopter to Aspirus Wausau Hospital where she died of her injuries.
