YAZOO CITY, MS (WLBT) -

Tuesday afternoon at 7:45 p.m., a resident on Valley Road in Yazoo City came home and noticed that he didn't see or hear their yardman cutting grass.

They began to look around outside and found 45-year-old Ronnie Warren under his zero-turn lawn mower. The homeowners rolled the mower off Warren and began CPR until first responders go there.

When emergency officials arrived, they pronounced Warren dead on the scene.

According to Ricky Shivers, the Yazoo City coroner, Warren appeared to have been cutting grass along the edge of a steep hill. Shivers said it appeared that the mower ran into a depression causing the mower to roll down the hill.

The cause of death appears to be a fractured neck and closed head trauma.
