Authorities have identified a 70-year-old central Michigan man who was killed when a bulldozer he was working on ran him over.

Saginaw County Sheriff's Lt. Miguel Gomez says 70-year-old Harold Mallory of Chesaning Township man was working on the bulldozer when it shifted into a different gear and struck him Sunday evening.

The Saginaw News reports Mallory was in his shed at the time. After striking him, the bulldozer continued moving for about 300 yards into a field.

Gomez says it isn't clear how the bulldozer shifted gears.
