DORCHESTER (KWWL) -

An accident involving an anhydrous tank shut down an Allamakee County road for hours on Monday.

The Allamakee County Sheriff's Office received a report of an anhydrous tank rollover near 331 Highway 16 just before 11:00 a.m. Monday.

Deputies say an employee of Meyer Farm in New Albin lost control of a vehicle pulling a dual anhydrous tank trailer.  The tank ended up in the ditch and overturned, breaking a valve on each tank.

A portion of Highway 16 was closed and a Code RED warning was issued for this within a mile radius of the accident. 

Officials say the brisk wind allowed them to let the tank off gas.  There were no injuries reported.

Highway 16 was reopened at around 4:30 p.m.
