FARMLAND, IN — Tragedy struck Farmland Volunteer Fire Department on Thursday when a fatal rollover crash claimed the life of Deputy Chief Kyle Osgood.

Sadly, Osgood was pronounced dead at the scene by Randolph County Coroner Darin James.

Lee, who sustained injuries in the accident, was immediately air lifted to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne for medical treatment.
