HAGERMAN, N.M. (AP) - State Police have released the name of a 96-year-old man who died after becoming trapped under his pickup truck in southeastern New Mexico.

Officers were called to the scene of a single vehicle crash about noon Saturday in Hagerman, which is between Roswell and Artesia.

When officers arrived on scene they learned that Lecil Warren had become trapped underneath a pickup and was unconscious.

Police say evidence at the scene of the crash showed Warren had gotten out of the vehicle and failed to put the vehicle into park.

The vehicle began to move in reverse and Warren was struck by the vehicle and became trapped underneath.

Emergency crews extricated Warren from underneath the vehicle, but were unable to resuscitate him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
