A 30-year-old Cache County man died Tuesday after his OHV rolled on top of him.

The man was with two other people taking turns riding an OHV in a local off-highway riding area west of Richmond near the Bear River about 6 p.m., said State Parks Lt. Eric Stucki.

The man, who was not wearing a helmet, jumped the vehicle over a dirt mound and landed off-balance, Stucki said. The vehicle rolled over him, injuring his head.

The man was taken to a Logan hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities were not releasing the man's name pending family notifications.
