A West Virginia man died after a tree hit him in the head in Beaver County about 11:35 a.m. Friday, police said.

Seth McMichael, 52, of Chester was chopping down trees with family members on wooded property they own off of Hookstown Grade Road in Independence when the accident occurred, said Patrolman Robert Moltzen of the Independence Township Police Department.

Beaver County Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossi pronounced McMichael dead at the scene, Moltzen said.
