Authorities say a man has died after being run over by a combine in a southeast Nebraska cornfield.

The accident occurred Tuesday morning in a field about five miles south-southwest of Geneva.

The Fillmore County Sheriff's Department identified the man as 58-year-old James Gabel, of Grand Island.

The department says Gabel worked for Allied Genetics in Grand Island and was measuring a test plot when the combine backed over him.

The department says Gabel died after being taken to Fillmore County Hospital in Geneva.
