A man known to many in Jackson County died Thursday morning in an accident with a bulldozer and a trailer, according to the sheriff’s office.
Brad Marlowe, 50, of Pendergrass, was killed when he was trapped between a Gooseneck trailer and a bulldozer at a Pond Fork Church Road address in Talmo.
Two witnesses said Marlowe was between the vehicles and was working on the trailer, which was parked on an incline on the side of the road, according to an incident report. The trailer began to pivot and slide down the incline toward Marlowe, who was pushed into a blade on the bulldozer and pinned between the vehicles.
One of the witnesses used a pickup truck to pull the trailer off Marlowe, who was pronounced dead on the scene.
A Jackson County investigator, the coroner’s office and an official with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) responded to the scene, according to an incident report.
