Truck spills liquid fertilizer in rollover

A semi-truck rolled and spilled 700 gallons of liquid fertilizer in Madison County on Thursday.

The Madison Fire Department said the crash happened near 5000 North and 1000 East near Sugar City around 10 a.m.

Helena Chemical Company of Sugar City was hauling 3,000 gallons of ammonium thiosulfate.

The truck rolled when the right front tire left the asphalt and sunk into the soft dirt of the right shoulder.

About 700 gallons spilled out of the tank before the spill was contained.

Those involved in the rollover sustained minor injuries.

Emergency crews worked for five hours to decontaminate those exposed to the chemical and to clean up the wreck.

“The incident was resolved with no threat to life and only minimal damage to property,” said Fire Chief Corey Child. “The department is appreciative of the cooperation of Helena Chemical Company in the remediation efforts.”
