Our hearts go out to this Farwell, Minnesota farmer’s family after a fatal chisel plow accident Sunday evening. According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Steven James Anderson, age 58, was chisel plowing when he was driven over by the chisel plow and dragged. The tractor eventually became stuck in a ditch and stopped.
Anderson was working alone in the field at the time of the accident. A 911 call was placed when he did not return home that night.
Deputies from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Brandon First Responders, and North Ambulance responded to the scene. The victim was transported to the Midwest Medical Examiners Office and the incident remains under investigation by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
