A semi became hung up on a concrete culvert in a ditch around 3 p.m. Wednesday after trying to make a U-turn on Highway 14 South in front of the Glen Jones home at 4540 Highway 14 South. Barney’s came and pulled semi out, but the accident caused traffic to be backed up in both direction on the highway.
