A business has re-opened and an investigation is underway following a hazardous leak in Loudon County.
Multiple agencies responding to the TA Truck Stop on Watt Road yesterday afternoon because a semi-truck was leaking an unknown hazardous material which was later identified as peroxyzxetic acid which is used to make surface cleaner and sanitizer but in the concentrated form it is highly corrosive and unstable according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Drivers on I-40 called in to 9-1-1 complaining of eye and skin irritation. Two drivers who were following behind the truck went to the hospital to be treated for eye irritation. The TA Truck Stop evacuated their building and shut down for the evening as a safety precaution.
