Accident and Chemical Spill Closes Road

A tractor trailer carrying sodium hyperchloride overturned on Highway 13 North of Windsor in Bertie early Friday morning shutting down the road for hours. A company spokesperson for Univar U.S.A. Suffolk says the truck driver lost control after sideswiping another vehicle early this morning. About 200 gallons of the liquid spilled into a ditch off the road, but no evacuations were ordered after the crash. A hazardous materials team was sent to the scene for the clean up efforts. No one involved in the accident was seriously hurt.
