Early morning traffic was stalled in west Tulsa after a semi-truck spilled sulfuric acid.

Tulsa Fire Department were notified of the incident before 8 a.m. after the truck halted on the right lane of northbound US-75/I-244. This was between Southwest Boulevard and the Arkansas River bridge.

Initial reports state that the truck driver noticed that the top cap wasn't secured and caused several gallons of sulfuric acid to spill on the roadway. Officials estimate approximately 20 gallons.
