A farm equipment accident Saturday in Ogallala led to the tragic death of a young man. According to Keith County Attorney Blake Edwards, 27 year old Jarred Robinson was helping some other people load up some farm equipment which was to be taken to a recycling place when things went wrong Saturday afternoon.
Edwards says Robinson was helping secure an unbalanced load on a forklift. The forklift operator thought Robinson was clear of the machinery and proceeded with loading a large piece of farm equipment onto a truck. The forklift struck Robinson in the head.
Robinson was taken immediately to the Ogallala Community hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Edwards says at this point, no charges are expected to be filed. An investigation continues.
