An elevator explosion in Tecumseh has killed one and injured three others.
Authorities suspect anhydrous ammonia exploded at the Midwest Farmer’s CO-OP grain elevator Thursday evening.
The Johnson County attorney’s office reports that two employees were taken to the Johnson County Hospital. 63-year-old John Bennett of Greenwood died of his injuries later.
The blast injured two others, including a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy. They are being treated for non-life threatening injuries as well as exposure to anhydrous ammonia.
