Spill creates stinky stretch of highway for drivers

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A haz-mat situation in Nacogdoches County Tuesday made for a stinky stretch of Highway 259.

Officials said around 8 p.m. Tuesday night, a truck hauling chicken parts was leaking down Highway 259, about 8 miles north of Nacogdoches. The driver apparently stopped to close the valve, but it had already created a mess.

Traffic was reduced to one lane while the spill was being cleaned up, but was back to normal within a short time.
