John V. Rohrer, 91, died in a Decatur, Ill. hospital Wednesday after being run over by a horse-drawn cart driven by an Amish man last month.

Rohrer was stepping out of a restaurant June 28 in the town of Arthur in central Illinois when he was hit and knocked over by a horse, and the cart it was pulling ran him over. Arthur has a large Amish community.

This isn't the first time-horse drawn tragedy has struck the Midwest this year: In January, a 29-year-old Amish man died when his horse-drawn buggy was rear ended by a car going 70 mph on Highway 63 near Moberly, Missouri.
