A 23-year-old Rosemount man died on Tuesday morning after he was struck by a skid-steer that was being operated by a co-worker along Highway 99 near 181st Street in Montgomery Township, Le Sueur County.

Tanner Korey Dosch, a Minnesota Valley Electric Company employee, was working on power lines when his harness line was run over by the skid steer and pulled him from a bucket lift, Le Sueur County Sheriff Brett Mason said in a press release to the New Prauge Times.

Responding to the scene were Le Sueur County deputies, EMS personnel, and North Air Ambulance.

The accident remains under investigation by the Minnesota State Patrol, the Minnesota Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Times reported.
