Caledonia Man Killed in Farming Accident
DORCHESTER, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a man killed when a farm machine ran over him in northeast Iowa's Allamakee County was a Minnesota man.
The Allamakee County Sheriff's Office says first responders were called Tuesday morning to a farm field northwest of Dorchester and found 64-year-old Gerald Oren Myrhe, of Caledonia, Minnesota. The sheriff's office says a combine had backed up over Myrhe when it was being maneuvered to unload corn.
Myrhe was pronounced dead at the scene.
