One lane of Highway 18 is closed


NORA SPRINGS, Iowa – Fuel leaking from a semi has closed one lane of Highway 18 near Nora Springs.

Near mile marker 190, a semi-truck ran over a muffler that was apparently dropped on the road by a motorcyclist in front of the semi.  The muffler punctured the truck’s fuel tank, which then leaked fuel over about a half-mile stretch of Highway 18.

No injuries are reported but westbound traffic on 18 has been reduced to one lane as clean up from this accident continues.
