New details about vapor plume that closed 422, truck company

A passerby who spotted a plume of vapor alerted authorities at about 7:20 a.m. today and that led to a discovery that about 2,500 gallons of hydrochloric acid had leaked out of a tanker truck at the Predator Trucking Co.

The company and U.S. Route 422 in front of the company were back open at about 11:20 a.m. today as the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency monitored the cleanup.

Capt. Raymond Knepper of the Weathersfield Township Fire Department, said a passerby called 911 when the person saw what appeared to be smoke at the trucking company.
