FLOYD, IA – Right around two Thursday afternoon crews were called to Shadow Avenue near Floyd to respond to spilled nitrogen.

It turns out a hose disconnected on farm equipment while a farmer was on the road.

Michael Morlae, with the Floyd County Emergency Management says it did not pollute the air or water, and there were no injuries.

But taking certain precautions is still necessary.

“Especially for the road, if a motorcycle were to drive over it, it’s very slimy, very sticky so it could cause a motorcyclist to crash its bike,” said Morlae.

Traffic was diverted around the area, but officials expect the scene to be back to normal by the end of the night.
