Authorities say a man has died after crashing an all-terrain vehicle into a tree in southeast Kansas.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office identified the man Tuesday in a Facebook post as Jacob Morse, 29. The post says deputies went to an Independence hospital Monday after Morse was rushed there in a non-emergency vehicle. He died of his injuries.

Witnesses said Morse crashed on the north side of the nearby Montgomery State Fishing Lake. The crash was deemed accidental.
