Could farmers be held liable for devastating dust storm accidents in Illinois?
Last week we reported on a devastating dust storm that resulted in a major traffic accident on a rural interstate in Illinois.
A state patrol said that the cause of the crash was due to excessive winds blowing dirt from farm fields across the highway obscuring visibility.
Many are now wondering if the farmers might be held liable.
Roger McEowen with the Washburn School of Law spoke with RFD-TV’s own Christina Loren on what regulations might play a role, if farmers could be held liable, and the big takeaways from the situation.
