Man killed in tree-cutting accident

HOBART – One man was killed in a tree-cutting accident Thursday morning in Hobart.

Hobart-Lawrence police officers say they were called to the 200 block of Trout Creek Rd. just after 10 a.m. A witness at the scene told officers his brother was cutting down a tree when he slipped and fell. The 65-year-old town of Oneida man fell into a shallow depression and the tree landed on top of him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man’s name has not been released.
