One man is dead after an accident involving a brush hog. Two men were mowing a field underneath electric wires Thursday morning when the mowing attachment became tangled in a guy wire. One of the men attempted to move the guy wire free from the mower when it became electrified. Both Bartlesville Fire and Ambulance responded to the scene and reporter Jonathan Eastman arrived shortly after

The Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy on scene confirmed that the man handling the guy wire passed away due to electrocution. His name is not being released at this time, pending notification of his family.
