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.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
