One dead, one injured in Minnesota farm accident

OLIVIA, Minn. - Authorities are investigating after finding one man dead and another man injured in a farm accident north of Olivia in central Minnesota. The Renville County sheriff says deputies responded to a call Wednesday afternoon reporting that two were men on the ground at a residence about six miles north of Olivia.

When deputies arrived, they found a 76-year-old man and 46-year-old Scott Bratsch on the ground. The older man was taken to a Willmar hospital, but Bratsch was dead at the scene.

The accident apparently involved farm equipment, but the exact cause is to be determined.
