A man operating a tractor at a construction site at a private residence near Boyd was killed Wednesday morning when the tractor tipped over. The man, from Decatur, was not identified pending notification of next of kin. The Wise County Messenger says the backhoe tipped over on its side, pinning the operator underneath. He died at the scene. Officials say it does not appear to be anything suspicious about the accident, which happened just after 10 a.m. in the 1200 block of County Road 4371 north of Boyd. It appeared the man was part of a work crew clearing brush and digging out a pond.
