NEW HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Authorities say a man has died after his vehicle rolled onto him while he was inspecting it in a Connecticut state forest.
The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection says it happened at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday in Nepaug State Forest along the New Hartford town line.
DEEP says Brendan Kohrer, of Granby, had pulled off from the access road and onto an unauthorized side trail to either inspect or repair his 2001 Ford Explorer when the vehicle rolled over onto him. The 41-year-old Kohrer was apparently underneath the vehicle.
Motorists traveling on the access road contacted police after seeing Kohrer’s vehicle.
No further details were immediately available.
