Acid-laden truck overturns in White County

Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2012 at 6:42 AM

Fox 16 reports that a tanker truck with 4,000 gallons of hydrochloric acid turned over near Peanut Ridge and Shiloh Roads in White County.

Hydrochloric acid is frequently pumped into the ground to fracture shale in fracking for natural gas. But I don't know where this acid was headed. Perhaps the truck was just making a delivery to a local high school chemistry lab.
