Car mechanic dies in workplace accident

A tragic workplace accident occurred this past Saturday around 4 in the afternoon at the Whip Appeal Auto on 3110 E. Bessemer Ave. in Greensboro.  19-year old Talon James Brandon was working on a vehicle when it fell on top of him and killed him.

Authorities arrived at the scene of the accident to find Brandon underneath a car.  Based on initial investigations, police believe that whatever was holding the car up collapsed causing the vehicle to fall on top of Brandon.  No one from Whip Appeal Auto has made a comment regarding the accident.

A representative from North Carolina’s Department of Labor and detectives were at the scene Saturday to begin investigations.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Brandon’s family and friends during this difficult time.
