A Clay County woman is dead after an accident while mowing her lawn.

Clay County coroner Danny Finley says Oma Byrd, 60, was on a riding lawn mower at her home on Saddler Road when she lost control of the mower and went over a small embankment.

Her John Deere tractor came to rest in a creek next to the road. Byrd was pronounced dead at the scene by the Clay County Coroner.

According to Finely, "Family members say mowing was one of the things Mrs. Byrd loved to do and this was her first time doing that this year."

Rominger Funeral Home is handing the the funeral arrangements.
