James R. Laslie, age 33, of Crestwood, Kentucky, was killed Tuesday afternoon while working at a home on Mockingbird Valley Road. Mr. Laslie was using a backhoe to dig a trench abutting the home on Mockingbird Valley Raod, when he got off the backhoe and entered the trench he had been digging. A concrete slab he had been digging around then slipped and pinned him in the ditch. He died from these injuries. This is a tragic loss for the Laslie family and friends. The circumstances of this death are under investigation, and the Estate of Mr. Laslie will be able to seek some justice from workers compensation and other avenues, but will never be able to replace the loss of life. The Ackerson Law Office’s sympathies go out to his family.
