CLEVELAND, Tenn. (AP) – A Bradley County man has been killed when his riding lawnmower flipped.

WDEF-TV reported the victim was 70 years old and the accident occurred late Wednesday afternoon at his home. A neighbor called for help.

The station reported the mower overturned onto the man, whose name was not immediately released.

At least two other mowing deaths have occurred this spring in Tennessee.

A Maury County maintenance worker was killed April 22 when a mower overturned in Columbia and a man died in Goodlettsville April 17 when a riding mower overturned on an embankment.
