AKELEY -- A four-mile stretch of Highway 64 south of Akeley was blocked off early Wednesday morning after a truck driver carrying a vat of hydrochloric acid, oils and industrial parts came over a hill, struck a herd of cows in the road and sent vats of the fluids and pallets of parts crashing inside the truck bed.
