Fatal Stearns County Farm Accident 26 Sep 13

Authorities are investigating after a man from Greenwald was killed in a farm accident Wednesday morning in Zion Township in Stearns County. Officials say 69-year-old John Schoenberg was struck and seriously injured by a large CAT front-loader driven by a 39-year-old man from Albany.  Schoenberg later died at the Payneville hospital.  Deputies learned he’d been walking in an area near a silage pit not normally used by pedestrians and the other man was unable to see him.
