Nelson County Sheriff David Brooks confirms to NCL that another life has been lost in the county within 24 hours of an elderly woman dying earlier in the day at a house fire in Gladstone. “This time it was along Browns Hollow Lane near Dickie Road in the Massies Mill area. The person killed was 28 year old Steven Wendell Evans. He was run into by a small trac loader while dealing with a mechanical problem. This has been a truly sad day in Nelson for families involved in both of these tragedies,” Sheriff Brooks said. Brooks told NCL the family was notified Tuesday evening.
Area, fire, rescue and law units arrived on the scene around dark and continued to investigate what happened into the early nighttime hours Tuesday.
