The Dawes County Sheriff's Office and County Coroner Vance Haug are investigating the death of a 77-year-old resident who was found unresponsive in a field Thursday night.

They say Garold Smith was found in a pasture trapped beneath a four wheeler approximately 20 miles southwest of Chadron.

His wife and dog found him after they returned from town.

Neighbors and law enforcement were immediately contacted for assistance. Although the specific cause of death is still under investigation and not yet been determined, foul play is not suspected at this time.
