HAZMAT Team Called To I-57

Traffic is moving on Interstate 57, but slowly.

As of Wednesday morning, one lane of traffic on the southbound lane near the Johnston City exit is still closed and crews are still cleaning up the scene.

State Police say the semi-truck rolled over a couple miles north of the Johnston City exit around 8 p.m. and started leaking a corrosive disinfectant liquid.

Marion’s HAZMAT team was on the scene to clean up the spill. No one needed to be evacuated and police say the driver of the truck was not injured.

Police are still investigating.
