Chemical spilled like glue but not hazard

CINCINNATI (AP) - Workers have had a sticky cleanup job to do in Cincinnati after a truck carrying a glue-like chemical sprung a leak on a busy westside street.

The driver of the semi saw that the leak had occurred early Wednesday and called police.

The trucking company sent a private firm to clean the substance from the road and transfer the remaining chemical on the truck onto another vehicle.

Officials at first thought the truck might be leaking a hazardous rust-inhibiting chemical but then determined it was a sort of water-based glue.

Hazardous materials crews and the EPA were on the scene until it was determined the substance was not a health hazard.
