A Peterbilt semitrailer lost its front axle after an apparent crash involving two vehicles on U.S. Highway 20 near Rockwell City sometime Wednesday afternoon. The crash appeared to occur in the eastbound lane near the intersection of 235th Street and Ogden Avenue. A damaged SUV could be seen being hauled away on a flatbed trailer. It’s unclear if anyone was injured in the crash as Calhoun County sheriff’s deputies were still investigating Wednesday night. The company listed on the side of the semi was Anthony P&L Inc., of Sioux Falls and LeMars. Rockwell City volunteer firefighters, Calhoun County EMS, and Iowa Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Enforcement, were on scene.
