One person injured by a moving commercial motor vehicle – January 15

On Wednesday, January 15, at 11:34 a.m., the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office investigated a commercial motor vehicle accident that occurred on the property of the Farmer’s Cooperative Society (FCS) feed mill, 903 Taft Street, in Boyden, IA.

Bruce Wehner, age 64, of Jesup, IA, was backing a 2016 Freightliner pulling a tank trailer on the FCS feed mill lot when the truck slid into a railing; employees at the elevator pulled the Freightliner from the railing using a loader. As Wehner began driving forward again, an FCS employee, Jeremy Nagel, age 26, of Hartley, IA, was walking next to the Freightliner when he slipped on some ice and his legs slid under one of the rear tires of the moving Freightliner.

Nagel was transported by the Boyden Ambulance to Sanford Sheldon Medical Center in Sheldon, IA for treatment of his injuries.

The railing sustained approximately $500 in damage. The Freightliner and trailer were not damaged.

The sheriff’s office was assisted by the Boyden Ambulance, Boyden Fire Department and Sheldon Ambulance.
