Lawn Mower Accident Claims the Life of Paducah Woman

breakingnews FATALACCIDENT 300PADUCAH, Ky. (9/23/13) – On Saturday, September 21, at approximately 4:42 PM, the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department responded to a lawn mower roll over incident in the 1300 block of Lebanon Church Road.
 
The investigation showed that 63 year old Connie J. Mayfield was operating a zero turn John Deere riding mower, mowing a field behind her residence.
