TOWN OF STEUBEN — An adult male was injured during a logging accident off Evans Road Monday afternoon, according to law enforcement officials.

Sheriff’s deputies said the man, whose identity has not been released, was cutting down trees off Evans Road shortly before 5 p.m. when one falling tree struck him in the head. The man was about half a mile into the woods, and responding officers and rescue personnel went in to get him.

The Barneveld Fire Department used their UTV to carry the man out of the woods. He was transferred to a waiting ambulance and taken to a local hospital for treatment.
