A worker has died in a tree-cutting accident in East Texas.
The Angelina County Sheriff's Office says the victim was dead at the scene Wednesday afternoon after a 20-foot section of tree fell on him. The man was identified as Lucio Vasquez of Groveton.
The accident happened on some private property at a rural site near Pollok, about 125 miles northeast of Houston. Authorities say Vasquez and several other people were part of the tree-cutting crew using heavy equipment and chain saws.
Authorities ordered an autopsy.
