CENTRAL POINT, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say an 85-year-old man from White City, Oregon, died after being trapped under his pickup.

A spokeswoman for the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy found Graham Wilkins underneath the green Ford Ranger Wednesday night. The hood was open and the serpentine belt was partially off, leading investigators to conclude he was working on the vehicle when the mishap occurred.

The sheriff’s office deemed the death accidental, but the case has been forwarded to the medical examiner’s office.
