Man Dies After Bush Hog Accident In Greenbrier

GREENBRIER, TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – An unfortunate accident involving a bush hog claimed the life of a 74-year-old Robertson County man after he fell off the tractor and was run over.

The accident occurred on New Cut Road just before 1:00 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. MAP After the accident, the man was able to call his wife, who then called 911. The incident happened when the man fell off his bush hog, which subsequently ran over him, severing his leg.

According to Fire Chief Joe Williams with the White House Community Volunteer Fire Department, something, possibly a branch, knocked the man off the tractor. Despite the quick response from Robertson County EMS, who transported him to TriStar NorthCrest Medical Center, he unfortunately did not survive.

The man was reportedly very familiar with the field and had bush-hogged it many times over the years, making this a tragic accident. Though not a contributing factor, the high temperature of 95°F likely did not help the situation.

The White House Community Volunteer Fire Department, the Greenbrier Fire Department, Robertson County EMS, the Robertson County Emergency Management Agency, the Ridgetop Fire Department, and the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene.

“On July 3, 2024, Emergency Services received a call at 12:55 PM reporting a traumatic accident involving a tractor and a bush hog. The first unit from the White House Community Volunteer Fire Department arrived at 1:04 PM. An advanced life support ambulance from Robertson County EMS arrived at 1:06 PM. Personnel treated and transported a gentleman to NorthCrest Medical Center. Despite all intensive efforts to resuscitate, the gentleman was pronounced deceased at NorthCrest Medical Center’s Emergency Department.” Robertson County EMS Director Brent Dyer
