Harold "Mason" L. Nash, of Salem, was killed Friday in a logging accident in Texas County, authorities said.

A 19-year-old male logger from Salem, Harold “Mason” Lloyd Nash, was killed in an early-morning accident on Highway AB in Texas County.

The man had reportedly just cut down a tree at about 7:30 a.m. and it fell in the direction that was planned. But it apparently fell on another downed tree, causing it to bounce. The logger had turned away and the bottom end of the bounding tree hit him in the back of the head, displacing a portion of his skull.
