Reidsville, NC – A 24-year-old Reidsville man was killed Sunday when he was crushed by a tree. Authorities stated that two men were logging in a wooded area almost a mile from Cart Drive. One man left for a short period of time and when he returned he found his co-worker pinned under a tree. The tree was 30 feet long and three feet in diameter.
The co-worker rushed to a nearby house to use a phone and call for help. Rescue crews from several agencies quickly responded to Cart Drive and needed special off-road vehicles to access the scene.
Unfortunately, the victim died at the scene. He has not been identified.
