A 61-year-old Clovis man is dead following a Wednesday afternoon farm accident.
Oscar Brooks was killed when a large round hay bale fell from a trailer and struck him, Curry County Undersheriff Wesley Waller said.
Just before 3 p.m., responders were dispatched to the scene, just off Llano Estecado Boulevard about a mile east of Humphrey Road.
Brooks was unloading a trailer of round bales at a farm owned by his family, Waller said.
The fatality is being classified as an agricultural accident, he said.
