Houston drivers dealing Hazmat spill on West Loop

As if the rain wasn't causing enough issues, Hazmat crews, the Houston Fire Department and the Houston Police Department are working to clean up a chemical spill on the West Loop.

The spill happened around 3:30 this morning Friday on 610 southbound near the 59 exit ramp.

Officers said when they got there, they found a tanker that had been carrying sodium bromide buckled in half.

The chemical is used as a disinfectant for pools and hot tubs.

The entrance and exit ramps in the area are shut down as crews do their work.

Police say the driver of the tanker is talking to police. The picture below is from our television partner, Channel 2
