Nashville Man's Death Appears Accidental



This morning’s death of Christopher Mays, 47, at Alexander’s Mobility Services, 7235 Cockrill Bend, appears accidental.

West Precinct officers were called to the business at 11 a.m. Mays was unloading a semi-trailer of plywood boards that had been secured upright at the end of the trailer. It appears that Mays unsecured the boards to drop them onto the forklift when they fell on him, pinning him against the wall. Mays, of Nashville, died at the scene.
