August 5, 2019

BEEKMANTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a 51-year-old man has died after his overturned all-terrain vehicle pinned him in shallow water in northern New York.

Troopers say the body of Robert Collins was found by a relative around 11 a.m. Sunday, four hours after he went for a ride on his ATV in the Clinton County town of Beekmantown.

Police say it appears Collins lost control of the vehicle on a trail and slid down an embankment. He was trapped beneath the overturned vehicle.

State police say Collins was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy was planned.
