Barge accident leads to toxic spill in river

Mar 1, 2007 | Chicago Tribune

Thousands of gallons of a toxic chemical spilled into the Ohio River between Illinois and Kentucky after a barge struck a lock wall, environmental officials said Wednesday.

The spill, which occurred late Tuesday from a Kirby Inland Marine-owned barge, was as much as 8,000 gallons of a petroleum-based substance called cumene, said the state Environmental Protection Agency. The chemical spill did not appear to pose a serious threat to residents or marine life, the Coast Guard said.
