Savannah cleans up after truck leaks sulfuric acid

Posted: Updated:

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Savannah-Chatham County police say crews are cleaning up sulfuric acid leaked by a tanker truck as it traveled through downtown Savannah and into neighboring Garden City.

The Savannah Morning News reports authorities found the leaking truck Saturday and discovered traces of the acid along its route. Police spokesman Julian Miller says several vehicles appear to have been damaged by the leaking chemicals. But no injuries to people had been reported.

Police warned drivers in the area to steer clear of puddles that may contain acid.

Chatham County Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman Kelly Harley says owners of cars and trucks that may have been contaminated by sulfuric acid should cover the area with baking soda and then rinse it with water to neutralize any acid.
