MONTEVIEW, Idaho (AP) - The Jefferson County sheriff’s office says a 71-year-old man was killed and a younger man was injured when a potato cellar collapsed in the eastern Idaho community of Monteview.

The sheriff’s office identified the man who died Thursday as Ronald James Ball Sr.

The Idaho Falls Post Register reports (https://is.gd/Q7N9Fa ) that the older man and 30-year-old Eric Ball reportedly were tearing down the cellar when the frame collapsed, pinning them underneath.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mickey Eames says people on the scene had already pulled them free when deputies arrived.

Eric Ball was taken to a hospital in Idaho Falls. A spokeswoman there said he was treated for his injuries and released.
