A tanker truck was rumbling down I-44 Friday night leaking sulfuric acid on to the street which is a problem because it turns out that stuff is bad for you.
Witness say a tractor trailer was leaking fluids while driving down the highway. Officials were notified, and an officer stopped the vehicle around 7:30p.m.
Obviously, emergency crews had to shut down the highway as well as rush the officer who stopped the truck to the hospital after he got sick from inhaling the fumes (he’ll be fine). Soon after, authorities released the truck and he continued on his way down I-44 to on Bourbon where we assume everything turned out just fine.
The tractor trailer that spilled sulfuric acid Friday night on Interstate 44 near Sullivan, Missouri is leaking again – but in a different city.
Officials say the hazardous mineral was found dripping from the truck Saturday morning at a commuter parking lot in Bourbon, Missouri, forcing nearby residents to evacuate the area.
Oh Sullivan cops, we told you sulfuric acid eats right through duct tape, but you said “No! This is the good kind, and if it’s good enough to make my wallet out of it, then it’s good enough for this tanker.”…and then you said “Yup.” and we’re still not sure why.
Since more reports of a sulfuric acid spill have come through, crews moved the tanker to the Bourbon Industrial Park, where an uncertain amount of the chemical will be unloaded.
…and then sold throughout the neighborhood since selling stuff kids can smoke or sniff but will obviously kill them is big business out there.
