A 62-year-old Shoshone woman was killed last week in a hay-stacking accident south of Bellevue.

The Bellevue Marshal's Office identified the woman as Susan Shoup. Marshal Bryan Carpita said Shoup was killed shortly after 2 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 3, after she fell from a mechanized stacking machine at Walker Ranch.

Carpita said Shoup and her husband had hauled a load of hay to the ranch and were unloading it when the accident occurred.

"They were delivering hay and she had crawled up on the stacker to move some bales and was coming back down the stacker and fell and hit her head on the fender of the stacker," Carpita said.

Carpita said death was likely instantaneous and that Shoup was unresponsive when emergency personnel arrived. He said CPR was attempted but was not successful.
