The "all clear" from authorities has been issued after anhydrous ammonia began leaking from a tank at the intersection of State and Bennington roads, northwest of Bancroft, at around 9:30 on Wednesday morning. A farmer behind the wheel of the truck pulling the tank told authorities the truck's brakes failed. He then made an abrupt turn at the intersection, causing the trailer to jacknif and the tank to overturn. The leak was the result of a pressure release valve that broke in the crash.
