(Brownstown) -- Authorities in Lancaster County say a toddler was killed in a farm accident, the fourth child to die in such an accident in the county this year. 

Police were called to the West Earl Township farm shortly before 5:00 p.m. Saturday for an accident involving a skid loader. 

Coroner Dr. Stephen Diamantoni says the 18-month-old child died of multiple traumatic injuries. 

Township police are trying to determine exactly what happened. 

A three-year-old girl was run over by a tractor in Little Britain Township on October 23 and a five-year-old boy was killed by a skid loader in Sadsbury Township on October 13. 

last February, a nine-year-old boy was killed when a feed car overturned on him on a farm west of Ephrata.
