Hazardous waste spill on Interstate 210

Lunchtime traffic on the westbound 210 freeway in Highland was worse than usual this week. A pickup truck pulling a trailer crashed and went off the right shoulder, landing on the embankment nearby.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the truck was carrying hydrofluoric acid; it spilled all over the freeway, causing it to be closed for several hours. Hazmat crews worked throughout the afternoon to clean up the spill and reopen the freeway. The Centers for Disease Control stated that hydrofluoric acid is highly toxic - even through inhalation exposure.

CHP officials are investigating to determine why the driver lost control and crashed his vehicle. He was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated.

The driver is lucky that no one else was injured. However, if you are injured because of another person's actions, contact a skilled San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will seek compensation for your injuries and medical expenses.
