A Hemphill man died after a tractor flipped over on him while he was trying to pull a truck out of the mud near a lake in Hemphill Thursday morning.

Brian Keith Nichols, 52, died at 9:08 a.m.

Sabine County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Tony Miller said Nichols' neighbor had backed a truck and trailer to the lake off of Sunny Shores Drive and got stuck. Nichols then brought his Ford tractor over and tried to pull the truck out of the mud. The tractor flipped backwards and on top of Nichols, killing him instantly.
