MADRID — A Spanish mayor says a man has died after being charged down and gored by a bull that was being herded into a northern village as part of annual celebrations to honor its patron saint.

Jesus Garcia Pastor said the 66-year-old man had wandered into an area of the town of Cuellar that was forbidden to revelers and was struck as the bull ran.

Television images showed how the man fell to the ground after the bull's horn had penetrated his chest.

The victim was identified as a visitor from the Basque town of Errenteria. His was the 12th death by goring in town festivals so far this year in Spain.

Bull runs are a traditional part of summer festivals across Spain, the most famous being San Fermin in Pamplona.
