HARDWICK, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- An elderly man was killed Wednesday after being pinned by an overturned ride-on-mower.

At about 8:30 a.m., the 86-year-old man began cutting his grass with his new ride-on-mower. When the mower got stuck, he tried to free it with an older mower, but the mower flipped and pinned him to the ground.

When the man’s wife found her husband outside, she called police.

The incident caused life-threatening injuries and Joseph Bartoszek, 86, of Hardwick was pronounced dead on the scene, police say.

The investigation into this incident remains ongoing.
