Central Minnesota man dies when grain wagon overturns

A central Minnesota man has died in a farm accident. Stearns County authorities say the man was found unresponsive under an overturned gravity box grain wagon on Wednesday night.

A family member found 52-year-old Daniel Wielenberg of Albany under the gravity box. A skid steer loader was used to remove the gravity box. Wielenberg was dead at the scene. Authorities say a corn bridge crust had formed over the top of the box, and Wielenberg tried to break the bridge, causing the box to overturn.
