Shelby Man Dies in Farm Accident

SHELBY, NY - An Orleans County man died after a farm accident on Sunday, July 11th.

The incident occured around 4:40 p.m. in the 4000 block of Taylor Hill Rd. The farm worker was found underneath a flat bed truck. It is believed that someone else moved the truck while the worker was taking a nap, without realizing he was underneath.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene by the Orleans Co. Coroner, and he was taken to Monroe Co. Hospital for an autopsy. Sheriffs say that determining the identity of the victim has been difficult due to the questionable immigration status.

Both the driver of the truck and the victim were employed by Root Brothers Farm in Albion.

The incident remains under investigation.
