The Guthrie County Sheriff’s office says a 68-year old Bagley man died Wednesday from hypothermia and underlying medical conditions. Authorities report Bagley and Panora ambulance crews were dispatched at around 7:15 a.m. Wednesday to the Yale Post Office after receiving word a male subject was discovered outside of his truck in an alley near the building.
The postmaster discovered the unidentified man laying on the ground, with his truck door open. It’s estimated he’d been there for at least two hours. Officials say while the man likely died from hypothermia, he appears to have had other medical issues that contributed to his death. The man was taken to the Dallas County hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
