TOWN OF BOVINA, Wis. (AP) -- Outagamie County authorities say a man working behind his truck has died after the vehicle slid backward on an icy driveway, pinning him against a barn.

The sheriff's department says the victim was a 63-year-old from the Clintonville area. His name hasn't been released pending notification of relatives.

Deputies say he was filling a farmer's milk truck Friday about 1 p.m. in the Town of Bovina. He was behind the truck unhooking a hose when the truck began to slide backward.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
