Update – The road is back open.

Early Thursday afternoon a semi truck hauling ethanol rolled into the ditch on U.S. Highway 34 between Black Hawk College and Midland Road.  The Henry County Office of Emergency Management is on scene assisting the Galva Fire Department with the cleanup and hazmat portion of the incident.  The driver of the semi was transported to a local hospital with unknown injuries.  At this time, officials on the scene do not see any ethanol leaking from the trailer but they won’t know for sure until the tanker is off loaded and rolled back over, according to Henry County OEM Chief Deputy Director Cameron.

U.S. Highway 34 between Midland Road and 2550 East will remain closed until early Friday morning. **Please do NOT drive around the barricades. You will not be allowed to drive through the scene. The barricades are there to protect the emergency personnel working hard to clean up the accident while following Federal and State EPA guidelines.**
