DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The investigation continues after a Silver Bay road worker was killed Tuesday when his excavator fell into the Baptism River.  The Lake County Sheriff’s Office says the accident happened just after 2:30 along County Highway 5, west of Silver Bay.  That’s where County Highway Crews were working to clear an ice jamb when the backhoe Lee Roy Jacobson was operating flipped into the river.  Jacobson’s co-workers were unable to local the 58 year-old.
