BURLINGTON, Kan. (AP) -- A northeast Kansas man is dead after a crane he was operating at a construction site tipped over and he was pinned beneath it.

The Coffey County Sheriff's Office says 51-year-old Eric Spaar of Holton was killed in the accident at a bridge replacement site north of Burlington in southeast Kansas.

Spaar was found underneath the 50-ton crane after the sheriff's office was notified of the accident Monday afternoon. He was employed by MidWest Construction Co. in Holton.

The sheriff's office and Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating the accident.
