Covington man dies from tractor accident Print E-mail

A Covington man using a bush hog was killed around 7:52 p.m. September 6 while mowing on his property located off KY 609 at 839 Ash Run Road.

Goebel Fryman, 74, was pronounced dead at the scene by the coroner. Pendleton County Sheriff’s Deputy Wayne Dutle responded to the accident scene. His report stated that the male subject was underneath the bush hog mowing equipment. It appeared that Fryman was mowing his field and as he came around a slight bend the tractor hit a metal object that apparently jarred him out of the tractor seat. He fell in between the tractor and the bush hog and evidently was run over by the bush hog.
