Hazmat Crews Respond to Chemical Spill at Harborcreek Truck Stop
It's an active morning for hazardous materials crews and volunteer firefighters in eastern Erie County, as they deal with an overnight chemical spill at a local truck stop.
It all started shortly after 3 a.m. Wednesday at the Travel Centers of America on the Depot Road exit on I-90 in Harborcreek.
Harborcreek volunteer firefighters were the first ones to get the call.
They found a double tractor trailer leaking some sort of chemical.
There were some early reports from the scene that it could be some sort of pesticide.
The rig has marking from Saia Transportation. It's a trucking company based out of Georgia,
The first priority for these crews on scene in Harborcreek is figuring out exactly what the leaking chemical is, and whether it presents a public risk.
