Sulphuric Acid Spill Pollutes China River

From Reuters:

A Chinese tanker truck carrying more than 30 tonnes of sulphuric acid has crashed in southwest China, spilling its load into a river and causing “serious pollution”, state media said on Wednesday.

The accident occurred on Tuesday, the last day of the Lunar New Year holiday, when the truck ran into the guard rail on a highway linking Anning and Chuxiong in the mountainous province of Yunnan, Xinhua news agency said.

“Some of the sulphuric acid has flown into a roadside river and has caused serious pollution. Many fish were killed,” Xinhua said.
