Unfamiliarity with the tractor he was operating might have played a role in an accident that killed a Pulaski County man Wednesday, according to Pulaski County Coroner Richard New.
Clarence "Butch" Crow, 53, died of head injuries. Crow was using a tractor and Bush Hog to clear a field 15 miles east of Somerset when the tractor went down a steep hill at high speed and hit a tree, New said.
Crow was thrown against the cab of the tractor.
New said the tractor was large, and Crow apparently was not familiar with it.
Crow was from Indiana but had moved to Pulaski County about three years ago. He had family in the area, New said.
His survivors include a 5-year-old daughter, New said.
