Local Man Dies In Tractor Accident

A Greeneville man died Tuesday following a tractor accident at his farm at 3612 Highway 107 in Washington County.

Johnny Rae Shipley, 70, of 1216 Christy Court, was treated at the scene by Washington County EMS and then flown to Johnson City Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

The accident occurred about 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, said Sgt. Ralph Gent, of the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies who responded to the scene said a man working for Shipley witnessed the accident and called 911.

Shipley started the tractor "and apparently knocked it out of gear," causing the tractor to run over him, Gent said.

Shipley was a longtime Greeneville resident.

Arrangements are incomplete and will be announced by Jeffers Funeral and Cremation Service.
