FREAK ACCIDENT KILLS BENTON MAN

A Benton man trying to harvest pecans became trapped under his tractor and died Monday afternoon. Bossier Parish sheriff's investigators say 33-year-old Clyde Burt was driving a tractor on his family's farm in Benton when it overturned, pinning him under one of the tires.
Investigators say it appears Burt drove up a levee to try to get around a wash, causing the tractor to flip on its side. Burt's father found him and called authorities. Burt was airlifted to LSU Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

That's a shame. You hate to hear of things like that. You always think it happens to the other guy, but it can get ugly real quick anywhere, at anytime, to anybody.

The investigation said that the load was too heavy for the tractor.It pushed him right into the ditch.

Scary thing is that this happens all the time. Never let down your guard and always play it as safe as possible. Think before you make a mistake that may be your last.
