Police say an East Texas homeowner has died after a tree that was being cut fell on him.

Tyler police say Wednesday afternoon's death of 51-year-old Robert Nicholas Kemper Jr. appears to have been an accident.

Investigators say Kemper and two employees were cutting a tree in his yard. The tree apparently became hung up on another tree as it fell.

Police say the trio dislodged the cut tree, then Kemper accidentally fell to the ground and was crushed by the falling tree.
