MISSOURI VALLEY — Authorities say a western Iowa county supervisor has died in a grain bin accident.

Harrison County Sheriff Pat Sears says 63-year-old Russ Kurth, of Logan, died in the bizarre Tuesday morning accident outside a grain bin just north of Missouri Valley. Sears say Kurth and another person were checking out a door from which corn was leaking on the new bin that had been recently filled.
