CLAYSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A coroner says a man was killed when his all-terrain vehicle overturned in central Pennsylvania, while he was working with a crew clearing brush near a power line.

The Altoona Mirror (https://bit.ly/V8WKog ) says Blair County Coroner Patricia Ross declared the man dead at the scene in Greenfield Township, near Claysburg, on Monday afternoon.

The coroner did not immediately release the victim’s name or cause of death, and could not immediately be reached by telephone on Tuesday.

Township police Chief Ronald Givler says the victim was the only man on the ATV when it overturned. It was not immediately clear if the man died from injuries in the crash, or whether the power line played a role in his death.
