FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- Police say a Farmington man has died after an ATV fell off his pickup truck and crushed him.

Farmington Police Chief Wayne Hansen says the 39-year-old man was near his home on Tuesday loading ATVs onto a rack on his pickup so he could go on a hunting trip. Something caused one ATV to slide off and it fatally injured him.

The man's 14-year-old son found him Tuesday afternoon. It was unclear how long the man had been underneath the ATV when he was found.

The man's name was not immediately released.
