One killed in farm accident in N. Caddo Parish

GILLIAM, LA (KSLA) -

One person died in a farm accident in North Caddo Parish Monday afternoon. 

It happened just before 5 p.m. at the top of a Gilliam Elevator grain silo on Hwy 3049.

The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office says 33-year-old Ross Lynn was helping an electrician replace a motor on the silo on the Lynn family property when a tensioner broke, causing Lynn to become tangled in the equipment.

Witnesses say Lynn hit his head on a catwalk and called 911. Caddo Fire District 7 and the Caddo Sheriff's Office responded, but Lynn was pronounced dead on the scene. An autopsy will determine the official cause of death.

The grain silo is estimated to be between 80 and 100 feet high. The electrician that was on the silo with Lynn was not injured and was brought down safely.
