Truck Hauling Herbicide Crashes in Iowa City

A truck hauling 200 gallons of Roundup Weather Max crashed on Interstate 80 near Iowa City Wednesday morning, causing the herbicide to leak into a ditch. Officials at the Department of Natural Resources are monitoring the cleanup.

According to The Republic, the truck was in a construction zone when it slipped off the pavement, landing on its side. The driver was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries. At this time, about 50 gallons have been recovered.

Firefighters have built earthen dams and absorbent pads to clean up the weed killer. Sand is being used to contain the spill while a full cleanup is underway.
