A Meadow Valley man was killed Tuesday morning after being struck by a tree he was falling.

According to the Plumas County Sheriff, the man was identified as 71-year-old Daniel Beer.

Beer and his wife were reportedly cutting down a tree in Deanes Valley when the accident occurred.

The tree reportedly took an unusual bounce after it hit the ground, striking Beer and causing fatal injuries. Beer was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The Sheriff’s Office sends our thoughts and condolences to the family,” Sheriff Greg Hagwood said. “This is a terribly tragic event.”
