Posted March 20, 2019 at 1:55 pm

In the aftermath of what has been labeled a tragic farming accident, the Clinton County community went into mourning with the passing of former long-time Clinton County Schools Band Director, Doug Sell.

Sell was pronounced dead at the scene by Clinton County Deputy Coroner Lonnie Scott Wednesday morning around 10 a.m.

The accident occurred on Sell’s farm on 697 Bill Perdue Road, off KY Hwy. 639.

“EMS just got the call that there had been a farming accident,” Scott said. “Once I got down there, he was dead at the scene. They put a helicopter on standby just as protocol. Any time we go out on anything serious, they put one on standby.”
