Longview Truck Spills Cleaner

An overturned 18-wheeler in Longview today gave new meaning to the term "clean-up" work. At around 9:30 Wednesday morning, the truck's driver lost control and overturned on Loop 281 near Tryon road. Police and Hazmat units arrived to find that the spill was actually cleaning solvent. Traffic was diverted for a short time while authorities tried to decide whether to clean up the spill. Or since it was cleaning solvent, let it clean itself!
There was no danger to the public , and the spill was cleaned up a short time later.
No one was injured.
