Man Crushed Cutting Trees In Calvert County

A Maryland man cutting downed trees into logs in Calvert County was crushed to death as he stood inside a hole, and a massive 10-ton root ball rolled on top of him.

Police say Brian Buck of Lusby, and two other were cutting a tree when when a log rolled into the root hole near a house on Rousby Road. Buck went into the hole to lift the log, but the root ball fell on top of him.

Solomons volunteer firefighters dug out  the 50-year-old Buck, but he was pronounced dead on the scene.
