Farming Accident Claims a Life in Rock Co.

A farmer is dead from injuries he suffered in an accident in Milton. 

The Rock County Sheriff’s office says the 69-year old man died when the International Harvester 640 he was using to tow a corn picker rolled over pinning the operator against a tree. The rollover happened yesterday afternoon in a field by a bridge off of East County Highway North in Milton. 

In another part of the state, a silo collapsed at a farm in Walworth County.   The corn filled silo crashed into the farm’s butcher shop and meat processing room causing extensive damage. Sorg says the silo has been there for nearly 50 years.  There are no reports of injuries.
