Freak accident kills Minden woman


A retired elementary school principal was killed in what authorities are calling a freak accident.

Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton says Lisa Toland died sometime Tuesday afternoon when she was working on her father’s farm on Dorcheat Road.

“She was riding a four-wheeler in the pasture with a spray rig hooked up on the back spraying some vegetation on the edge of the pond,” he said. “It looked like where the cows had made a trail, the four-wheeler dropped off into it.”

The four-wheeler shifted when the front tire dropped off, turning over the ATV and pinning her underneath the water, he said.
