BARNESVILLE, Minn. (AP) — The part-owner of a western Minnesota bus company has died after getting trapped under a garage door at his business.

Fifty-one-year-old Stephen Peterson of Barnesville was found Monday by his brother, who had gone looking for him.

Barnesville Police Chief Dean Ernst says Peterson apparently got caught under the large garage door as it was closing.

The door apparently did not malfunction. Police are treating the death as an accident.

The Forum newspaper reports Peterson was part-owner of Barnesville Bus Co., which contracts with the school district for transportation services.

His body was sent to the Ramsey County medical examiner for an autopsy.
