Many people have died over the years in Silo accidents. Also, the trailers that hold the grain from the fields to the silos are killers. It's like quicksand if you step in one of those things.

This should bolster a wrongful death lawsuit for the family.

Business, and government lie like crazy, about most everything. Don't believe a word they say. We will not drink the Kool-Aid anymore.

they said it was unsafe. wow seems strange iv been hauling grain there for many years and that was the first accident that ever happened there that morning. it was a tragic loss. i still think about that day all the time couse i just left that morning right before the accident. farming is a dangerous job and you always got to keep your guard up at all times. accidents do happen all the time around farms and it was just too sad that morning when we heard the news at the farm.
We need more regulations

I think what we should do is make less regulation so they don't have to pay fines or face punishment when something like this happens.
