Residents of a north Houston neighborhood were forced to evacuate their homes on Monday, February 24 after a truck crashed into a ditch at the corner of Des Chaumes and Roland Street near U.S. Route 59. The truck was hauling potentially dangerous chemicals.
The Chief of the Houston Fire Department said that the tanker was carrying a significant amount of corrosive alkaline and could have ignited a fire if any other vehicles were involved in the accident.
Cleaning crews decontaminated the area to ensure that no one was harmed by the chemicals.
