Highway 13/19 east of New Prague reopened around 3:40 p.m. after being closed for about an hour this afternoon while crews worked to bring a tractor upright after the driver of the vehicle pulling it lost control of the load on Highway 19.

An Elko man was westbound on Highway 19 when the trailer carrying the 1971 International 1066 tractor blew a tire and the man lost control of the trailer and the Ford pickup truck he was driving, according to the state patrol. The vehicle and trailer carrying the tractor spun out and came to a rest on the shoulder of the eastbound lane.

With the highway closed in both directions, the tractor was pulled to an upright position. There were no injuries in the incident.
