One man died this morning as the result of a tree-cutting accident in Somerset, Washington County, emergency dispatchers said.

The accident occurred around 10:45 a.m. along Brownlee Road, dispatchers said. No other injuries were reported.

Richard N. Toci, 62, suffered blunt force trauma, and his death was ruled accidental, said Washington County Coroner Tim Warco.

He was discovered by a family member after the tree he was trying to cut fell on him.
