An accident took the life of a well-respected Queensland grazier who saw the state through the drought.
Father-of-three When Scott Todd fell from the tray of a moving pickup on Saturday morning in Thargomindah, which is located in southwestern Queensland, he sustained injuries that ultimately proved to be fatal.
The Bollon man, who was 38 years old, passed away at the scene of the accident, while the local man, who was 27 years old, remained unharmed.
“We’ve got no money left,” In 2019, the AAP published a story about Scott’s struggle to overcome the effects of the drought.
“We break it down and say this is what we’re doing until this day, and then we’ll reassess it. Otherwise the anxiety and the pressure and the stress and the depression becomes too much and you just can’t function properly.
“Sometimes you drive down the paddock, and pull up and think what the f****** hell am I doing.
People have spoken on social media about how they recall Todd as being “ferocious and crazy,” but yet incredibly kind.
He was also well-known for his lobbying work on behalf of farmers, during which he made numerous pleas for further assistance for those affected by the drought.
On the Brigalow Downs property, which is located close to Bollon, Todd operated a farm.
He is survived by his partner Alison, and their three children.
The crash is still being looked at by the Queensland police department.
