The MDEQ was called to the scene of the accident. They said that the chemicals were dangerous and were explosive. They had to unload each drum and put the contents inside another drum, then right the truck, then clean up whatever was spilled on the ground.
In Mississippi, these 18 wheeler trucks must carry special insurance if they are going to haul hazardous materials through our state.
