It's not the first truck to flip on this section of 440. Two very sharp turns in the road. You could easily flip a car or SUV let alone a fully loaded top heavy truck.

Just some info --

"Sodium Hypochlorite" is bleach or rather a "bleach like" chemical -- if mixed with ammonia in sewers or elsewhere it can create chlorine gas -- here is a link.

Tanker carrying chemicals overturns
Route 440 closed in both directions
WABC 7

(Bayonne - WABC, Oct. 24, 2006) - A tanker carrying chemicals overturned on Route 440 on the border of Jersey City and Bayonne this morning.
Newscopter Seven was live over the scene.

This all happened when the tanker, carrying sodium hypochlorite, flipped on the highway near Avenue C in Bayonne just before 4:30 a.m. Route 440 was closed in both directions.

Hazardous materials crews were on the scene to determine if the chemical was leaking into the sewer system.

The road is a major truck route, and services the New Jersey Turnpike Interchange 14 A.

Metro Traffiic's Joe Nolan advises drivers to allow a lot of extra time to get where you're going this morning or take an alternate route.
