Two Cumberland County men died in an apparent logging accident near Lewistown this morning.

The Mifflin County Coroner's Office said Randall A. Wert, 36, of Newville, and Kermit F. Wells, 71, of Newburg, apparently were struck by a tree they were cutting.

The men were working at a logging site off Wakefield Road in Oliver Township and were found dead shortly before 10:30 a.m., authorities said.

Both died as the result of blunt force trauma to the head, according to investigators.
