Improper Procedure in Longview Pesticide Leak

Longview firefighters say a haz-mat company could've put more lives at risk during a Thursday pesticide spill. Officials say a trailer was leaking a dangerous pesticide called *parathion* at a truck stop on the Interstate. It was towed from the truck stop *into Longview by *Big-d*. Chief Richard Lazarus says the truck *should* have been dealt with where it was, so no one else would be at risk. Fortunately no one suffered any effect from the pesticide.
