Tanker leaks carbon dioxide

Hazmat crews were called to the scene in Pelham Manor at around 3 a.m. on the off-ramp of exit 14 of the New England Thruway.

The NY Traffic Authority reported the tanker slid off the exit ramp.

According to fire officials, no one was exposed to anything dangerous. Homes in the area were being monitored. Carbon dioxide is a chemical compound that in some forms can be dangerous if inhaled.

The driver of the truck suffered a minor injury. It’s not clear what caused the accident.

The exit ramp remains closed.  [My Fox New York]
