HAMILTON, Miss. (AP) - A Hamilton man has died in an accident at his farm in Monroe County.

County Coroner Alan Gurley says in a news release that 55-year-old Don Self of Hamilton died around 8:20 p.m. on Wednesday in a field north of Greenwood Springs.

Gurley says Self was working in the field with his farming equipment transporting peanuts that had been harvested by another farmer when the accident happened.

Gurley says Self was caught in between his truck and the trailer of his 18-wheeler as an employee was preparing to hook it to the trailer.

He was airlifted to North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo where he was later pronounced dead.
