Acid spill on I-44

SULLIVAN, MO (KMOX) – West bound I-44 was closed for most of Friday night while a Hazmat team cleaned up an acid spill in the Sullivan area.

A truck carrying sulfuric acid was leaking and pulled over by Sullivan police. 

One officer suffered breathing problems and was taken to a hospital, but police tell KMOX he has been taken off of a breathing apparatus and is doing well.
