MORRIS – A farm vehicle carrying anhydrous ammonia rolled over Monday leaking causing area residents to be evacuated.

According to Grundy County Sheriff’s Office, it happened around 4 p.m. on Minooka Road causing multiple agencies to respond to the scene including the Morris Fire Department and Grundy County Emergency Management Agency.

It’s still unclear what caused the accident.

No injuries were reported in the rollover but local residents were evacuated from the area until the cleanup was complete, which took several hours.

Anhydrous ammonia is a widely used source of nitrogen fertilizer.  High exposure to it can cause blindness, lung damage, and death in humans.
