A logger from Briceville, Tennessee was victim of a work accident on May 6. 60-year-old Calvin L. Daughtery was at a Campbell County work site when he suffered a head injury due to a falling tree. Daughtery was cutting a tree when it fell, hit another tree and caused the top to break. The top of the tree then fell and hit Daughtery, which caused him to hit his head on a rock, causing a severe head injury. Investigators have ruled the death an accident and stated there would be no further investigation into the case.

Unfortunately, many deaths happen in work places, some of which are avoidable. Some of the most common workplace accidents are truck accidents, slips and falls, and malfunctioning equipment.
