Construction Worker Killed in Accident on Seabee Base

A Moss Point man is dead following an accident at the Seabee Base. According to Harrison County coroner Gary Hargrove, the accident happened while 29-year-old Tracy Evans was working on a draining project for the base.

Evans was helping some people get ready to lay a section of pipe when he got caught between a track hoe and the pipe. Hargrove says the pipe broke lose from the front end loader and pinned him between the pipe and the tractor.

According to Hargrove, Evans suffered severe head injuries and died immediately after the accident occurred.

Evans worked for SCI, who is a subcontractor for BE and K. An autopsy is scheduled for Saturday.

Evans' death is under investigation by the coroner's office, OSHA, NCIS, and base security at the Seabee Base.
