NORWOOD — Hydrochloric acid was discovered leaking from a 275 gallon container in the back of a Buffalo company’s tractor-trailer when the driver stopped at a convenience store in Norwood on Thursday.

The driver thinks one of the many containers of the acid he was hauling may have been punctured when he hit the brakes while driving in the town of Canton, said St. Lawrence County Hazmat Chief of Operations Allen S. Rickett.

“Probably quite a bit leaked between the two locations,” Mr. Rickett said. “He got into Norwood around 4:30 or 5 p.m. That’s where he noticed the leak.”
