CHATTANOOGA, TN, (WDEF)-When a van collided with the rear trailer of this transport tractor, the trailer turned over and started leaking floor stripper.
Daniel Hague, chief of Tactical Services Chattanooga Fire Dept,"The load was in the front of the trailer and the trailer on it's side and the product leaking we could not determine exactly what the chemical was initially"

11 vehicles  responded this morning and officials are relieved that none of the fumes got in contact with members of the public"

Chief Daniel Hague,"Extreme to some people, we go by the best information that we have at the present time and we try to reduce the hazards and the hazard zones as quickly as possible"

With all lanes south bound on i75 closed for nearly 4 hours, commuters were not in the best of spirits.

Bo Smith,"start thinking well before you get up to the end of the traffic line, an alternate route to take, so that you don't get caught in it, once you get in the traffic snarl it's hard to get out of it

No was injured during the incident and
commuters say this was one of at least three wrecks on our roads this morning.
