Around 7 p.m. Monday, Georgia State Patrol responded to a tractor accident off Highway 41 South by the Dasher city limit, according to Sgt. Carl Taylor, with the Georgia State Patrol.
Troopers say Amy Blackledge, 35, was trying to pull her husband James' tractor, which had stalled in the field, when the tractor she was driving turned over.
Blackledge got pinned underneath it and died on impact from injuries to her upper body.
"When I first heard about the incident, I just felt like she was so young, only 35," said Daveion Ward, of Valdosta. "And you know, a family lost a wonderful lady."
Blackledge's body was transported to Carson McLane Funeral Home, said Lowndes County Sheriff Chris Prine.
The incident is under investigation.
