There were no injuries when two, 18-wheelers wrecked May 12 on Highway 63 about five miles south of Mammoth Spring. This 2002 Freightliner, driven by Bill Hoffman of South Dakota, sideswiped a 2007 Peterbilt driven by Dale Kirkpatrick of Springfield and then overturned. The freightliner was carrying 4,400 gallons of Round-Up weed control. Although the chemical was not hazardous the Mammoth Spring Fire Department and Salem Fire Department and the Hazmat team were called to the scene of the accident to help clean it up.
