Indiana grain elevator dust explosion leaves two with critical injuries
28 September 2016
Mechanical failure was the cause of a grain dust explosion at the Tate & Lyle Elevator in Francesville, IN, on September 26 that left a truck driver and a firefighter with serious burn injuries, local news organisations reported. The failure of the downward leg of the north pit of the silo created a spark that triggered the dust explosion, a police spokesman said.
The Indiana State Fire Marshall’s Office has concluded its probe into the cause, clearing the way for investigators from the Indiana Occupational Health and Safety Administration to move onto the scene.
