Semi full of ethanol crashes in South Dakota

Quick, someone call John McCain. South Dakota could use his ethanol-drinking skills during the clean-up following a semi-truck accident near Big Stone. According to a very short story from the Associated Press this afternoon, the driver was injured (broken arm, cuts and bruises) and the truck was a "total loss" following an accident at 3:30 yesterday afternoon. Several thousand gallons of ethanol spilled from the crash, and haz-mat teams were called in. It seems that the ethanol was from Poet, as the truck was coming from Poet's refinery in Big Stone City before it veered off the road. There has been no statement from Poet.
