GATESVILLE, Texas (AP) — A Central Texas man has died after his ATV fell on him while hunting feral hogs.

The Coryell County Sheriff’s Office identifies the accident victim as 73-year-old William King from Oglesby.

Sheriff Johnny Burks says King was dead at the scene Thursday night along a riverbank southeast of Gatesville.

Investigators say King was with several other hunters when his ATV approached the banks of the Leon River. Officials say King’s ATV slid down a 20-foot embankment and landed on top of him.
