An 18-year-old senior at Pedro Menendez High School has died in a tractor accident.
The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office says Jerad Anthony Revels was driving an open cab tractor on the family farm off Cowpen Branch Road this morning, where a family member found the tractor overturned on top of him.
That family member had been driving a separate tractor in front of Revels. That person noticed Revels was no longer following and went to investigate. Revels was found in a ditch with the tractor on top of him.
The family members and others were not able to get the tractor off the victim, and first responder’s pronounced him dead on the scene.
