FAIRFIELD, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police say a 31-year-old man is dead after he rode an ATV into a logging cable that was stretched across a field in the town of Fairfield.
The crash in a field off North Road was reported about 1:40 p.m. Saturday.
The name of the victim has not been released pending notification of his family.
The investigation found the victim had been working on a logging winch and a cable had been stretched across a field to uncoil it. The victim left the field for lunch and when he returned he apparently forgot about the cable, striking it with his upper body and neck.
The victim was found by family members.
