NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - A nasty spill of what appeared to be corn mash slowed down traffic near the ethanol plant in Sutherland Wednesday afternoon.
According to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, a truck dropped a load of corn on Highway 30. The driver of the tanker truck didn’t bother to stop, according to authorities.
Firefighters with the Hershey Volunteer Fire Department sprayed the road with water to clean up the mess. Crews with the Nebraska Department of Transportation were also on scene putting down sand to prevent the road from getting slick.
It’s unknown which ethanol plant the driver visited previously.
Fortunately, there were no accidents due to this incident.
