(Newser) – A 74-year-old man has died after being gored in the neck by a young bull during a small-town summer festival. The man was charged and killed by the young bull during an early morning bull-run in the northern town of Lodosa today, a spokeswoman for the Spanish town said. She said the man was hit after the beast left the normal route of the run and escaped into side streets. It was not immediately known if he had been taking part in the run. One other person was injured by the bull and taken to a nearby hospital.
