COLUMBUS, Ind. — One person had to be taken to Columbus Regional Hospital following an anhydrous ammonia leak south of Taylorsville Monday night.
Dry conditions and a wind shift likely prevented a full-scale evacuation of nearby residents, police said.
Shortly before 9:30 p.m., the anhydrous ammonia was being applied as fertilizer to a farm field off County Road 500N, just east of U.S. 31. But the application suddenly stopped when Christopher Jarosz discovered a hose had burst on his tank, according to Bartholomew County Deputy Sheriff Maj. Todd Noblitt.
