MCCOOL JUNCTION, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a 65-year-old man has died after being pinned under an all-terrain vehicle in eastern Nebraska.

The York News-Times reports (https://bit.ly/2u1dfFi ) that the accident occurred in a pasture about 3 miles (5 kilometers) west and a half-mile (1 kilometer) north of McCool Junction. York County Sheriff Dale Radcliff says Harry Herron’s body was found around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

Herron had been seen in the field around noon Saturday, spraying weeds, so it’s assumed the accident occurred later Saturday. The sheriff says it appears Herron was driving up a steep embankment when he hit a washout, and the four-wheeler tipped over, pinning him underneath.
