Family of Idaho Trucker Sues Farm in Fatal Crushing Incident

Truck driver Chad Thompson was carrying out his daily rounds in the farmlands of Idaho when a routine stop turned tragic. The 30-year-old was buried under a 40-foot-tall pile of silage and killed instantly. Silage is fermented fodder that is fed to farm animals like sheep and cattle, and is frequently stored in the tall metal silos that dot farms and pastures. The lawsuit filed against silo owners 4-Bros Dairy claims that they were negligent in their construction of the pile and care of the material. A dollar amount for the damages claimed has not yet been released in the impending suit.
