Ethanol Tanker Leak Keeps People from Homes

download (26)Some residents of Rowan County are still not allowed to go back to their homes more than 36 hours after a fatal accident and hazardous chemical spill. According to authorities, a tanker truck carrying thousands of gallons of ethanol fuel leaked into the surrounding soil.   Emergency crews and a Hazmat team have been called to the crash site near Bringle Ferry Road.  The cleanup efforts have begun, however, it could take weeks before the job is finished.

While emergency crews have stated that none of the fuel has reached any streams or creeks, there are still concerns about the chemicals having tainted a nearby well. The accident involved one fatality.  The driver of the semi-truck was identified as James Sechler, 63 of Mooresville. Two families who lived near the crash site were evacuated. The residents are being kept out of their homes until they crews completely examine the area and are certain that the well has not been contaminated.
