Manure tanker rolls near Riceville

HOWARD COUNTY - On Aug. 3, 2022 at approximately 10:55 p.m., the Howard County Sheriff’s Office received a call that a semi with a manure tanker went in the ditch on 130th St., west of Bell Ave. (south and east of Riceville).  
The caller advised that approximately 5,000 gallons of manure had spilled into the ditch.  The driver of the 2005 Peterbuilt, Brian Erickson, age 43, from Preston, Minn. was making a right turn into a field driveway when he turned too short. The wheels of the trailer went into the ditch causing the tractor and trailer to roll in the ditch on its side.  
There were no injuries, and the DNR was called to monitor the spill.
