Turnpike partially closed in Fulton County after chemical leak

WAUSEON — Eastbound lanes of the Ohio Turnpike were closed in Fulton County Thursday afternoon due to a leak of nitric acid from a box truck.

According to the Ohio Highway Patrol, an eastbound commercial vehicle carrying containers of nitric acid was stopped about 4 p.m. Troopers closed those lanes because the liquid is potentially hazardous.

Eastbound traffic was being diverted off the turnpike at State Rt. 108 and directed to U.S. 20 east and then to State Rt. 109 to re-enter the turnpike.

The Wauseon fire department along with the Toledo Fire Department's hazardous materials team were called to the scene.
