Authorities are warning of a hazardous materials situation on I-10 in Tucson, Arizona, after a truck carrying nitric acid overturned and spilled its contents onto the roadway.
The spill prompted an immediate response from emergency crews, who quickly established a perimeter around the area to prevent anyone from getting too close. Hazmat teams were also called in to assess the situation and begin the process of containing the spill.
Drivers in the area are being warned to avoid the affected section of the highway and to expect significant delays as a result of the incident. The hazmat warning is expected to remain in effect until the spill can be fully contained and cleaned up.
Nitric acid is a highly corrosive substance that can cause severe burns and other injuries if it comes into contact with the skin or eyes. It can also release toxic fumes when exposed to heat or other chemicals, making it a serious hazard for those in the vicinity of the spill.
Authorities are urging anyone who may have come into contact with the substance to seek medical attention immediately.
