Authorities in the western Upper Peninsula are reporting the death of a 69-year-old man in the crash of an off-road vehicle.

The Iron County sheriff's office says the accident happened Saturday in Crystal Falls Township, about 55 miles southwest of Marquette.

The department says a call came in about 8 p.m. saying a man was found unresponsive under his four-wheeled vehicle.

The department identifies the victim as David Pansier of Marquette. It says he apparently lost control of the vehicle, which crashed and rolled over on him.

Investigators say Pansier was driving and wasn't wearing a helmet.
