Chopper 9 flew over the scene where personnel were seen wearing hazmat gear approaching the tractor-trailer that was leaking fluid from the back of the haul. The fluid was identified as glutaraldehyde, which is considered a skin irritant. There is no danger of contamination to the public, environment or surrounding area, Charlotte Fire officials later confirmed.


There are significant delays and drivers could be seen standing outside of their vehicles waiting for traffic to clear.

At 4:30 p.m., traffic is backed up past Exit 9 a through C and north of the Highway 74 interchange.
