Morgan man seriously hurt in trench collapse

On Tuesday, Oct. 27, at about 10:30 a.m., the Renville County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 report of an occupational accident that had occurred in a rural farm field south of the intersection of Renville County Roads 18 and 2, about 11⁄2 miles north of Morton in Birch Coulee Township.
The preliminary investigation revealed that Scott David Reinhart, 45, of Morgan, was among a crew of workers installing tile in a field. Reinhart was in a trench, which was approximately 7 feet deep, attempting to connect tile lines when one of the trench walls collapsed, burying him. Reinhart had to be extricated from the trench by co-workers and emergency personnel. He was flown from the scene by North Air Care to North Memorial Hospital with serious injuries.
