Arkansas man dies after being ejected from bucket truck

Ashdown, AR – 68 year old Tommy Green died Tuesday while cutting trees in Ashdown. According to a witness, Green was in the bucket lift with a chain saw. After the treetop was cut, it started to fall and hit other trees. It rebounded and struck the boom on the truck, causing him to be ejected from the bucket. When emergency services arrived they found Green on the ground laying next to the top of the tree. The bucket lift was still about 45 to 50 feet in the air resting against a large pine tree trunk that had the top cut off. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Little River County Coroner Roddy Smith. Green was a self employed tree trimmer and landscaper.
