Worker killed by falling tree in Halifax; investigation launched

SoVaNow.com / December 10, 2018
An Altavista man was killed in a timber accident Wednesday in western Halifax County while clearing a site near Kennon Lane between the Town of Halifax and Vernon Hill.

Jeremiah L. Morrison, 29, of Altavista died when a tree fell on him, according to authorities. He was employed by Asplundh Tree Expert Co. and was part of a crew that was at work in a wooded area a short distance from the rural roadway.

The Wednesday morning accident is being investigated by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry. Ron Graham, a compliance officer for the agency, said the investigation of Morrison’s death is underway but declined to comment on what, if anything, is known about the circumstances of the accident.

“The investigation is ongoing at this point and we are in fact-finding mode,” Graham said.

The state labor department has six months from the date of the incident to make a determination of what happened, at which time the agency could issue citations and impose a monetary penalty against Morrison’s employer if it finds it committed safety violations.

Morrison, a resident of Lynch Road, is survived by his parents, Odell Morrison of Danville and Nancy Hunt Morrison of Gladys, his fiancée, Angela Witcher of Altavista, a brother and two sisters, his paternal grandmother, and other relatives and friends. Funeral services were scheduled to be held Monday, before the weekend’s snowstorm.
