Hazardous leak evokes evacuation
Cpt. Wesley Harris, public information officer with the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office, said a call was received around 6:30 a.m. from an employee of the company who was traveling behind the truck.
“He noticed some off the acid splashing out of the dome,” Harris said.
“The truck was stopped and our deputies along with state police are on the scene. A small area around the largest spill, located near Ken’s Mini Mart, was evacuated. There are very few houses in that stretch.”
