Tractor-trailers collide and cause chemical spill

Tuesday after two semi trucks collided near the Tennessee-Kentucky state line, a huge chemical spill was left for cleanup. In addition, the accident happened in Campbell County on I-75 near the 159-mile marker when one semi in the right lane rear-ended another truck. The semi, which was hit, was hauling plastic containers filled with non-toxic silicone, which spilled onto the highway. Clean-up crews temporarily used sand to dry the area, although it didn't work well. Unfortunately, the area had to be graded and milled before the area could reopen. The semi driver that caused the accident was cited for failure to exercise due car. Luckily no other cars were involved the crash, and no one was injured.
