Loose tanks block highway

February 3, 2005

Mitchell County-- Tanks of flammable chlorine fell onto the highway when an 18-wheeler and flat bed truck collided in Mitchell County Thursday.

State troopers are still investigating what caused the wreck on U. S. Highway 19 about fives miles north of Camilla. The chlorine tanks flew off the truck, but no chemical spilled. Crews shut down one southbound and one northbound lane to clear the wreckage.

They spread sand on diesel fuel that spilled from the semi-truck. No one was hurt.
