CORNWALL, Ontario - A truck leaving the new shopping centre site at McConnell Ave. and Ninth St. East spilled a five-gallon pail of hydraulic fluid exiting the premises causing a congestion in traffic.
Cornwall fire department platoon chief Gilles Crepeau said the minor accident caused the road to become slippery.
"We don't want this to cause an accident," said Crepeau.
Around 4:30p.m. four firefighters were on scene using heavy-duty brooms to push around absorbents to clean up the mess.
There were no injuries.
