HazMat crews on the scene of tipped tanker truck in KCK Monday
KANSAS CITY, Kan. – A tanker truck containing hazardous chemicals tipped into the air Monday, while attempting to unload near S. 66th Terrace and Kansas Avenue in Kansas City, Kan.
At about 11:00 a.m. on Monday, an 18-wheel tanker truck was unloading chemicals into a receiving tank at Dayton Superior Chemical Company.
As the load was being emptied, the rear of the tanker truck became too light to counterbalance the weight of the front end, and the truck began to lift off the ground.
Cranes were brought in to aid in stabilizing the truck while the rest of its contents were being emptied.
No injuries were reported at the scene, and as of 3:40 p.m. Monday, HazMat crews were still on the scene but were said to have the situation under control.
