Three Lincoln Residents Rushed To The Hospital After Ammonia Leak

Two tons of Anhydrous Ammonia leaked into the air , sending three Lincoln residents to the hospital. The ammonia created a thick fog, which sent two cars into a ditch east of Pawnee City. The driver of one of the cars, Steve Berger is in critical condition… His passengers, Denise Peterson and Aaron Berger are in fair condition. The second vehicles' driver was treated and released. Farmer Gene Kalina says the hitch pulling the fertilizer's tanks broke… He says the shut-off valves didn't work and wind spread the gas.
