Wilcox Farms fined $67,200 for fatal Roy silo collapse

Wilcox Family Farms has been fined $67,200 for not properly maintaining a Roy feed mill silo that collapsed in December and buried a worker under 500 tons of grain, killing him. The state Department of Labor & Industries cited the company for one “willfull” violation and two safety violations that likely contributed to the silo’s collapse Dec. 2. Killed in the accident was Steven Green, a 44-year-old Marine veteran who left behind a wife, four children and 13 grandchildren.
