COLUMBUS, Mont. (AP) — A man has died in an all-terrain vehicle crash while spraying weeds in south-central Montana.

Stillwater County officials say 51-year-old Dustin Sturm of Absarokee failed to return from a weed spraying job Wednesday. Residents in the area were searching for him and called the sheriff’s office late Wednesday.

Undersheriff Randy Smith says Sturm was found deceased at 3:30 a.m. Thursday. His ATV had rolled down a steep ravine.

Sturm recently served as superintendent of Absarokee schools.
