Trucks collide

Good morning,

It's Tuesday, Dec. 10 and here's what you need to know to start your day in Jefferson County. 

1. A proposed bypass of U.S. Highway 12 around Fort Atkinson has officially been nixed by the Wisconsin Transportation Project Commission. 

The project, which drew the ire of citizens constantly in the two decades since its beginning, was tabled in 2012.

2. A crash last week between a gas tanker and garbage truck in Farmington sent two to the hospital. 

Both trucks were severely damaged and an undetermined amount of the 2,400 gallons of diesel fuel in the tanker had spilled on the road.
