UPDATE: State Patrol trying to locate semi driver

The Minnesota State Patrol is asking for the public’s help in locating a semi truck that may have been involved in an incident on the morning of March 1.

Trailer burns on I-94

By Liz Vos

Staff Writer

A semi trailer hauling frozen French fries burned along interstate 94 on Oct. 18 around 10:30 a.m.   

The truck’s driver, Joey Kellen of Brandon, South Dakota, was uninjured, but a bit shaken as he stood in the ditch.

Kellen said he was in the eastbound lane, just passing through Albany when the trailer’s right rear wheel exploded. Kellen pulled over immediately to find the wheel in flames. He attempted to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher in his truck, but it was too late and the flames overtook the trailer.

“I was able to get the truck detached and pulled that ahead,” Kellen said.

Above him, smoke billowed as the Albany Fire Department fought the blaze. Traffic was backed up as crews worked on the scene and smoke could be seen for miles as the trailer and its contents burned

Fall Harvest Farm Safety

Fall Harvest Farm Safety

By: Brenda Miller, University of Minnesota Extension-Todd County

Now that harvest season is upon us, it is important to remind ourselves to be safe when operating equipment. Accidents can happen in less than a blink of an eye and can have devastating outcomes. Here are 10 things to keep in mind as you go through this harvest season.

1.     Do not expose children to hazards. Teach them farm safety at a young age. Children watch everything you do. If you put yourself in a potentially hazardous situation then they will think it is ok, mimic you and bad things will happen. Explain to a child the importance of WHY and HOW they should or should not act around machinery or other farm hazards. If you teach them right when they’re young, it will stick with them for the rest of their lives.
