Man dies after tree falls on excavator
Authorities said a 62-year-old man has died after a large tree fell on an excavator he was operating in the region.
The Herald-Palladium reports the man was part of an excavation crew working on a drainage project yesterday in Berrien County's Benton Township when the tree fell, crushing the cab of the excavator and pinning him inside.
The work was taking place near a subdivision.
The man's name wasn't immediately released, but authorities said he was from Paw Paw.
