Ottumwa’s Roundabout Closed several hours

By mlambrecht, June 17, 2014

There were some tense moments on the City’s east side following an accident early this morning .

The accident occurred shortly after 7:00 a.m. at the city’s one and only roundabout.  Officials say a semi tanker loaded with ethanol rolled over while coming around the roundabout.

The Ottumwa Fire Department, the Wapello County Rural Volunteer Fire Department and the Southeast Iowa Response Group responded to the scene.  As  a precautionary measure a large area around the scene was closed off to traffic as crews transferred the load of ethanol to another tanker.

Shortly after 11:00 a.m. most of the area was reopened to traffic.

The crash remains under investigation.
