Semi Tanker Crashes, Causes Major Manure Spill

Nearly 5,5000 gallons of liquid manure was spilled over the roadway last week when a semi-tractor tipped over along a highway in southern Wisconsin.

According to the Green County Sheriff’s Department, the accident happened Friday afternoon on County Highway SS in the town of Decatur.

Authorities say Jeffrey Brewer, 61, Evansville, was driving the truck when he failed to negotiate a curve, causing the rig to enter into a ditch and overturn. He suffered minor injuries in the crash.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources also responded to the scene.
