A city of Killeen maintenance worker died when the riding lawn mower he was using overturned and pinned him, police said.
Lee Dell Carrington Jr., 41, was working at A.A. Lane Park when the accident occurred Thursday, police spokeswoman Carroll Smith said.
Smith said the accident was under investigation by police.
Glenn Morrison, Killeen's director of community services, said Carrington will be missed.
"Lee was an employee and person everybody wanted to be around," Morrison said.
He declined to speculate on how the accident occurred.
Carrington had worked for the city's grounds maintenance crew since 2002.
