Authorities said a 62-year-old man has died after a large tree fell on an excavator he was operating in the region.

The Herald-Palladium reports the man was part of an excavation crew working on a drainage project yesterday in Berrien County's Benton Township when the tree fell, crushing the cab of the excavator and pinning him inside.

The work was taking place near a subdivision.

The man's name wasn't immediately released, but authorities said he was from Paw Paw.
