Henderson County Farmer Dies in Tractor Accident

A Henderson County farmer dead after a tractor accident Monday night.

Allen Loux, 48, was riding his tractor when it apparently slid down a 15-foot gulley and overturned. The tractor trapped him underneath and suffocated Loux.

Investigators were called out to the 2000 block of Doe Creek Road near Sardis at around 7:30 last night.

Family members told officers that Loux had been drinking and had taken pain pills for his back earlier that day.

The medical examiner has ruled his death an accident.
