Highway 12 detour to remain in place, but cleanup progressing at accident site


MURDOCK -- Traffic will continue to be detoured around a portion of U.S. Highway 12 between Murdock and DeGraff for a few more days, possibly until Sunday, while anhydrous ammonia from a damaged tanker is safely removed.

The situation is under control, but authorities are being careful to prevent any risk to the public or workers at the site of the semi-truck and train collision that happened Tuesday morning, reported the Swift County Sheriff's Office.
