Chemical Spill In Washington Wednesday

Drivers had to be detoured from one of Washington's busiest roads Thursday when a chemical started leaking from a truck.

Authorities say phosphoric acid, a chemical primarily used in the production of agricultural fertilizers, started leaking from a truck on 264 East near National Spinning around 11:00AM.

Officials say there was no big health threat, but the substance is very corrosive.

Officials say the chemical leaked because the driver didn't tighten the dome lid enough.
