A 77-year-old Prairie City man died in an all-terrain vehicle wreck Thursday, May 26.

Larry Blasing was using a Honda four-wheeler equipped with a weed sprayer on or near his property four miles east of Prairie City when the ATV rolled in a small ravine, pinning Blasing underneath, according to a press release from Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer.

Deputy Tyler Smith investigated the incident, Palmer said, and the initial report indicated a family member of Blasing asked a neighbor to look for him when he did not return home. The neighbor returned and had the family call 911, before beginning CPR.

The sheriff’s office was dispatched to the incident at about 8:40 p.m., and Blasing was pronounced dead at the scene.
