Pinellas County deputies are investigating a deadly work-related accident.

According to Palm Harbor Fire, a tractor fell on a worker in the area of Chatham Drive and Lake St George around 2:19 p.m. on Wednesday.

The worker died at the scene.

Officials told ABC Action News the tractor fell into a hole and the worker was ejected.

But it is unclear if the tractor then fell on the worker.

The name of the victim are not known.

While ABC Action News was reporting live at the scene, Duke Energy vehicles were seen leaving the area.

We are making calls to figure out if the worker was employed by Duke Energy or may be a contractor.
