Work continues to clean-up Red Cedar from truck accident
MENOMONIE - Divers are said to be still working to clean up the chemicals spilled into the Red Cedar river March 5th when a tractor-trailer truck slid off snow-covered Interstate 94 in Menomonie.
The driver and a passenger in the big rig were killed. That truck was carrying almost 12 tons of fertilizer, a herbicide used for killing crabgrass. The whole cargo of almost 600 bags was dumped in the river.
