BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Police in Sullivan County say a 61-year-old man has died in a tractor accident.
The Kingsport Times News reports William McClure was pronounced dead at the scene Friday.
Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Leslie Earhart says officers found McClure pinned beneath the tractor’s hay baler.
She says it appears McClure had stepped off the tractor when it began rolling forward, knocking him to the ground and causing the baler to roll over him.
