Morris Township, PA (WBNG Binghamton) An Oakfield man is dead after being thrown from his ATV and run over by it.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, Theodore Strang, 38, was driving his 2005 Yamaha Big Bear 400 ATV on Horn Hill Rd. in Tioga County at 8:45 Friday night.

Strang failed to make a left hand curve. Troopers say because of the speed and gravel road, Strang lost control of the ATV.

The ATV traveled off the road and down an embankment.

Strang was thrown off the ATV and was run over by it.

Authorities say the ATV hit a tree approximately 50 ft. down the embankment where it stopped.

Deputy Coroner J. Daugherty pronounced Strang dead at the scene due to blunt force trauma.

He was not wearing a helmet.
