BOARDMAN, Ore. (AP) - The Morrow County sheriff’s office says a 57-year-old north Oregon man has been found fatally crushed under a truck in what appears to be a “tragic accident.”

Undersheriff Steven Myren said a 911 caller reported finding the man trapped under the vehicle Thursday night near Boardman.

Officers found Lenard Abercrombie of Irrigon dead, crushed between the partially raised tilt-bed of a truck and the truck’s frame.

Myren says an investigation indicates the man went to work on the vehicle on Wednesday. Concerned relatives contacted the sheriff’s office on Thursday. Officers were beginning to check on the man’s whereabouts when the call came in.
