GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) — Authorities in southwest Kansas say the death of a man who was pinned under a front-end loader at a dairy has been ruled accidental.

The Garden City Telegram reports that 21-year-old Jeffrey Schiffer was killed Tuesday at a dairy operation in Finney County.

Schiffer worked for Garden City Tire Center.

Sheriff John Bascue says Schiffer was changing tires on a front-end loader at the dairy when the loader slipped off a jack and fell on him.

Authorities said Schiffer had recently moved to the area from Colorado Springs, Colo.
