Authorities say about 5,500 gallons of liquid manure spilled after a semi-tractor overturned in Decatur, injuring the driver. Deputies from the Green County Sheriff's Office responded to the crash at about 12:44 p.m. Friday.

Authorities said Jeffrey M. Brewer, of Evansville, was driving a semi-tractor hauling the fertilizer on a county road and failed to negotiate a curve. The semi-tractor went off the road and into a ditch where it overturned.

Authorities say the driver suffered minor injuries.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources responded to the scene.
