It took several hours for police and emergency road crews to clear up an accident in North Carolina last week. A tractor-trailer carrying a load of sulfuric acid overturned, causing an hours-long delay on a busy interstate. According to the police report, the driver lost control of his rig and fishtailed across the highway. The truck overturned and quickly caught on fire. Luckily, the driver escaped the crash with minor injuries. However, it took several days for the North Carolina Highway Patrol to clear the accident and allow vehicles back on the roadway.
Officers told news sources that they created detour routes for travelers, some of which took the drivers into South Carolina and then back across state lines.
