HUDSON, Wis. (WEAU) -- The driver of a truck that was hauling manure in a 2,000-gallon tank was hurt when his truck collided with a train.

It happened Monday just before 1 p.m. on 150th Avenue at Sandy Creek Road, which is northeast of Glenwood City. The St. Croix County Sheriff's Office says the Anthony Minke, 19, was driving the truck. Deputies say he didn't yield to a train at the time of the crash. The truck rolled into a ditch, and the tank was pushed down the tracks. Some of the manure leaked into a creek bed. Crews called the Department of Natural Resources about the spill. It’s unclear how much manure spilled.

Minke went to the hospital with unknown injuries.
