Licking County Employee Killed In Tree Cutting Accident
A Licking county employee is dead after a tree crushed him to death during a tree trimming accident Thursday.
The incident reportedly happened while 45-year-old Troy Murphy was trying to remove a tree from a roadway just outside of Granville when a large section twisted in an unusual way and landed on the Newark resident.
A local fire chief says co-workers used heavy equipment to remove the tree and perform CPR, but Murphy was pronounced dead a short time later.
