By  | 

ODESSA- Update:
Cleanup continues but one lane is back open.
Update 9pm:
City Spokesperson Andrea Goodson confirms 191 from Billy Hext to the loop eastbound could remain closed for hours after an overturned truck spilled an undisclosed amount of Bellacide 300.

Goodson said the fracking chemical is corrosive and the TCEQ is monitoring cleanup. Goodson adds that it is not airborne, therefore not an immediate threat to the area.


Fire and police are on scene of an incident involving a trailer along 191 near Billy Hext road. Initial reports show a chemical may be spilling from an overturned trailer.

Police are diverting traffic off of 191 eastbound just before Billy Hext heading out of Odessa.
