    Fairfield, Vt. Man Dies in ATV Accident in Field

    Vermont State Police say a 30-year-old man is dead after he rode an ATV into a logging cable that was stretched across a field in the town of Fairfield.

    The crash in a field off North Road was reported about 1:40 p.m. Saturday.

    Authorities have identified the victim as Ryan Branon, of Fairfield.

    The investigation found Branon had been working on a logging winch and a cable had been stretched across a field to uncoil it. He left the field for lunch and when he returned he apparently forgot about the cable, striking it with his upper body and neck.

    Branon was found by family members. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
