18 wheeler accident on Highway 290 causes chemical spill

An 18-wheeler tanker truck overturned yesterday evening around 9:15 p.m. spilling 5,000 gallons of chemical onto the roadway and closing westbound 290 at Mueschke Road. A nearby restaurant and gas station were evacuated as a precaution and two Harris County Deputies were treated for exposure at the scene. Apparently a passenger vehicle was also involved, though exactly how the accident happened isn’t apparent from media reports. Channel 13 News said nobody was injured in the wreck.
