JASPER COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Jasper County Sheriff's Office says an accident involving farm machinery led to a man's death.

It happened late Thursday morning near County Road 200 North and County Road 1100 West.

According to investigators, a 50-year-old Brian Keller of Veedersburg walked behind a front-end loader that was backing up.

The sheriff's office says he was struck by the left rear tire and fell to the ground. The front end loader then rolled over his upper torso and head.

Investigators believe Keller was wearing earbuds and didn't hear the loader backing up.
