Boy, 14, dies after farm accident in Sanilac County

Posted: Updated:

MAPLE VALLEY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say a 14-year-old boy has died following a farming accident in Sanilac County.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports that Ben Troyer was operating a feed grinder Thursday in Maple Valley Township when he got caught in a belt-and-pulley system.

He was taken to two hospitals before being pronounced dead. The farm is located about 55 miles north of Detroit.

The sheriff's department investigated last week and released information Tuesday.
