I-75/85 Atlanta Reopens After Crash And Chemical Spill

As if commuters aren’t already stressed by the closure of I-85 because of the March 30th bridge collapse, Monday morning’s closure of 75/85 in Midtown meant more changing routes. Authorities say that a tractor trailer was involved in an accident with an SUV. The big rig toppled over spilling its contents, 150 gallons of Benzoyl Chloride, an industrial chemical which officials say did not pose any harm to businesses in the area. It is used for dyes.
