Mott Man Dies in Monday Farm Accident

Posted:

A 19-year old Mott man is dead following a farm accident Monday north of town.

Hettinger County Sheriff Sarah Warner says Mike Wehri was driving a sprayer that got too close to an overhead power line.

MDU spokesman Mark Hanson says it appears the machinery came in contact with transmission line.

The accident caused a power outage to New England, Mott and Regent for close to an hour around 4:15 mountain time.

Wehri had just finished his freshman year at NDSU.

The Hettinger County Sheriff's Department continues to investigate the accident.
