On the above date and time, the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office, Volga Fire Department and Brookings County Emergency Management responded to the above location for a single vehicle accident with diesel fuel spilling into the ditch. It was found Andrii Abramov, 28, of Canistota, SD was operating a truck with a trailer. While driving, a vehicle approached the roadway from a field approach. Andrii believed the vehicle was going to enter the roadway and attempted to avoid a collision by entering the ditch. Once in the ditch, the trailer became detached from the truck and struck the truck in the door and fuel tank. This impact caused approx. 50 gallons of diesel to leak from the tank into the ditch. The Volga Fire Department responded and was able to contain the fuel spill. This incident remains under investigation by the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office.
