HAMLIN, N.Y. — Police say a 19-year-old man has died after the bulldozer he was operating ran over him at a western New York farm.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office says 19-year-old Gino Valle, of the town of Greece, was working Thursday morning at a farm in the town of Hamlin, on Lake Ontario about 15 miles (24 kilometers) west of Rochester.

Deputies say Valle was operating a bulldozer that somehow ran over him. He was taken to the hospital in nearby Brockport, where he was pronounced dead.

Police are still trying to determine who the accident occurred.
