Overturned tanker outside SE business emits vapor cloud

Posted: Updated:

Crews are working fast to clean-up a mess caused after a tanker overturned just outside of a business in southeast Atlanta Monday morning.

There appeared to be a steady stream of visible vapor, similar to the vapor given off by dry ice, coming from the overturned tanker.  The City of Atlanta Fire Rescue Department confirmed that the leaking substance is liquid nitrogen and non-hazardous.

The crash happened adjacent to C&S Wholesale Meats local along Confederate Avenue SE at Edie Avenue. Two tankers are on site – with one overturned and the other backed up to it.

Authorities say the contents of the overturned truck are being moved to the second truck.

Officials have not confirmed what caused the tanker to overturn or if anyone was hurt.
