CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Part of I-85 southbound is blocked at Little Rock Road as hazmat crews work to clean up a corrosive liquid Friday morning.
Officials say a barrel fell off of a truck after midnight.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol said the left side of a tractor-trailer collapsed spilling barrels onto roadway. One barrel came open spilling corrosive material onto road.
Chemical is a corrosive chemical with a generic name of sodium bi-sulfate, according to officials.
The Charlotte Fire Department hazmat team contained the spill and a private cleanup company hired by the trucking company is continuing to clean up the interstate, officials said.
As of the 7:30 a.m., crews have opened two lanes on I-85. No one was injured in this incident.
