NC Mowing Accidents: Defective Lawnmowers

Blog Category:
Comments (0)

An elderly man in a Johnston County mowing accident died after his mower overturned and landed on top of him. Edwin Summers was crushed in the NC mowing accident and found in a creek. Reports indicate that Summers’ lawnmower went out of control just before the accident. If the mower was being used the right way, how did Summers lose control? Other recent lawnmower accidents across North Carolina, like the fatal Blue Ridge Parkway mowing accident, could point investigators on the trail toward defective manufacturing—or was it negligent use?


How can you find out if your lawnmower is defective? The mower Summers used was a zero-turn mower. The make and model have not yet been released. To find out if your mower has been recalled, check out updates from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. Here are a list of recalled lawnmowers:

  • Country Home Cordless Electric Lawnmowers (2004 Neuton Model)
  • Black & Decker Cordless Electric Lawnmowers (Models CMM1000 and CM1000R)
  • Murray Lawnmowers (multiple models)
  • American Honda
