On Friday, September 21, 2018 at 8:31 AM the Dunn County E-911 Center received a report of a tire that had blown while it was being worked on and an adult male had sustained head trauma.
Eau Claire Ambulance and Dunn County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to the scene in the 9600 block of Cty Rd E in Spring Brook Township.
The adult male had sustained trauma to the head and was pronounced dead on scene. No one else was injured.
Based on the investigation it was learned that a tire had been changed on a wheel from a wagon used to haul silage.
While the tire was being inflated, the tire depressurized and the escaping air launched the tire and rim into the adult male who was working on the tire.
The Dunn County Medical Examiner’s Office assisted on scene.
The incident remains under investigation.
The name of the deceased is not being released pending notification of family members.
