Manure Spill Fatal Rollover

A rollover crash off Highway 25 near the town of Nelson Tuesday night caused the death of the driver of the semi truck.

The Buffalo County Sheriff's Office is investigating the accident.

The rollover crash spilled about 5,000 gallons of manure. Deputies say they found the truck on fire, and the 63 year old driver dead inside.

Crews are not saying how long it will take to clean the spill up, or what kind of environmental issues may come next.

Authorities did not immediately identify the driver killed. No other injuries were reported.
