10-14-05 - A Madill city worker died Friday morning in what authorities are calling a freak accident. William Ray was checking water meters when a driver rear-ended his pick-up, pinning him under the vehicle.
It happened just after 9 am along Francis Street. Ray, the city's water and cemetery director, was outside the vehicle at the time. He was also a volunteer firefighter. Rescuers used the Jaws of Life to lift the pickup, but Ray, 52, died at the hospital from massive internal injuries.
Tammy Richardson was driving from her house just a block away when she hit the truck – officers say the sun was in her eyes, and she may have not been paying attention.
