Cle Elum Man dies in backhoe accident

Kittitas County, WA -10/16/2013 - On 10/15/13 at about 9:30 AM, Sheriff's Deputies responded to the Thorp Cemetery Road to a farming accident involving a backhoe and the operator, 37 year old, Shawn Tolbert from Cle Clum.

Tolbert was outside of the backhoe, and may have placed a  chunk of metal on the foot pedal that operates the boom on the equipment.  The boom swung to the side pinning Mr. Tolbert between the stabilizer arm and the backhoe causing fatal injuries.

(Next of Kin have been notified)
