Tree falls on man Wednesday
An Indian Trail man died Wednesday after a tree fell on him on Elstead Circle in Weddington.
Smith Thomas Carr, 37, of Indian Trail, was the man reported to have died in the incident.
Carr worked for P & J Grading and at the time of the incident was working to help clear land.
"They were out working, clearing some land for a developer in this neighborhood, it's a relatively new neighborhood," Captain Ronnie Whitaker of the Union County Sheriff's Office said.
While Carr was working on one tree, another tree fell on him, Whitaker said.
Attempts to contact P & J Grading were unsuccessful as of press time.
