Unfortunately, on September 23, a backhoe operator in Eagleville died after his vehicle overturned. According to WSMV-TV, the worker, 58-year-old Ricky McCurry, of Manchester, died when the backhoe he was operating flipped over and pinned him.
His injuries were so grave EMS could not transport him to the hospital for treatment, and he died at the scene. McCurry was reportedly working on a project at Eagleville High School.
An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
