Central Texas man killed while hog hunting

CORYELL COUNTY, TX (KXXV) - A Central Texas man has died after his ATV fell on him while hunting feral hogs.

The Coryell County Sheriff's Office says it happened Thursday night along a riverbank southeast of Gatesville. Investigators say 73-year-old Oglesby resident William King was with several other hunters when his ATV approached the banks of the Leon River.

At some point officials say King's ATV slid down a 20 foot embankment and landed on top of him. King was pronounced dead at the scene.
