UPDATE: Anhydrous Ammonia Crash In Dubuque County


A crash involving a pickup truck carrying anhydrous ammonia forced the closure of a Dubuque County Road this morning. (Friday morning) A release from the sheriff’s office says 27 year old Austin Willenborg of Epworth was driving the truck south in the 7-thousand block of Olde Massey Road at around 8 this morning (Friday morning), when he lost control rolling over the tank that was carrying the anhydrous ammonia. Willenborg was not hurt, but was transported to MercyOne in Dubuque as a precautionary measure. Since the crash happened near a residence’s driveway, the people inside the home were told to stay inside while authorities worked the scene. The accident closed about a mile of Olde Massey Road for about 3 hours. It has since reopened. Charges against Willenborg are pending.
