MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Officials say a Shelby County public works employee has died in a tractor accident.

Twenty-nine year-old Pierre Davis was maneuvering a tractor while cutting grass along a ditch near the Raleigh community on Monday when the tractor flipped over. He died at the scene.

Davis was an eight-year employee of Shelby County government. He started in 2006 as a temporary laborer and equipment operator.

Davis was hired as a full-time laborer with the Roads and Bridge Bureau in 2011.

Director of Public Works Tom Needham said Davis was a faithful employee who took pride in serving the citizens of Shelby County.
