Silo accident kills Price County farmer


The Price County Sheriff's Department says a 53-year-old man died in an accident at his farm near Catawba.

Sheriff Brian Schmidt says the farmer was working in a silo on Monday and some silage broke loose, crushing him.

Price County Coroner Jim Dalbesio said Robert Wanish died early Tuesday at a Marshfield hospital. An autopsy was performed but preliminary results were unavailable Wednesday, the coroner said.
