PIKE CO., IN (WFIE) -

A Madisonville man dies after a truck rolled over him in Pike County.

Thursday evening, Indiana State Police and Pike County Sheriff's Office responded to CR 75 South near CR 325 West after a neighbor found a man under a pickup truck in a nearby field.

Authorities say 72-year-old Lonnie Frederick was driving his 2014 Ford F150 pickup truck on CR 75 South when for unknown reasons he pulled off the roadway and stopped on a slight downgrade in a farm field.

ISP says Frederick got out of his truck without putting the vehicle in park and walked to the front of the vehicle. The vehicle started to roll and ran over him.

The Pike County Coroner pronounced Frederick dead at the scene.

An autopsy performed Friday indicated that the death was accidental.
