SC Man Dies When Tractor Rolls Over on Him (C&P)
Goodness, another rollover resulting in the death of the operator. The same thing happened in the same general area just a couple weeks ago! I copied & pasted that story on the safety forum in another thread further down below. There are no pic's at the link.
Man Dies When Tractor Rolls Over on Him | wltx.com
WESTMINSTER, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a Westminster man died when the tractor he was driving rolled over on him.
Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis says 43-year-old Terry Ray Land was killed in the accident that happened Saturday evening when the tractor rolled over on Land. The tractor didn't have a rollover protection bar.
Addis said Sunday that Land was found by family members who searched for him when he wasn't at home. He says it appears Land may have taken a bale of hay to a horse pasture.
Land died of traumatic asphyxiation.Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!
