EASTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A manure tanker and tractor flipped over near Ionia Wednesday.
It happened around 9 a.m. near the intersection of Potters Road near Johnson Road in Easton Township, landowner Rick Thompson told News 8.
“This is a very unusual situation to see a big tanker with a big combine in my pond,” Thompson said.
He said his wife heard what sounded like an explosion. Neighbors helped the driver out of the truck, who was able to walk but appeared shaken up.
It was unclear how long cleanup would take.
Thompson said the pond had been closed off from creeks so any contaminants would not spread.
