A tractor accident that occurred last night resulted in the death of Madison County man near Valley View. The incident, according to the coroner, occurred on Carver’s Ferry Road. The man has been identified as 55-year-old Tommy Davis from Richmond.
According to the Madison County Coroner, he believes Davis was knocked off of the tractor due to rough terrain and died due to injuries sustained. Family made the call after looking for him after he had been putting tires on the tractor around 9:30 last night, according to Cornelison, when he did not come back. Cornelison said he pronounced Davis dead at the scene around midnight this morning. The cause of death is listed as blunt force trauma.
Cornelison says the tractor did not turn over, but there was a bush hog attached and the grass was wet so this may have been a factor. No foul play is suspected at this time.
