ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

Good news for travelers as the east and westbound lanes of Highway 158 near Highway 385 are now open following a Hydrochloric acid spill in Ector Co.

We’ve learned about the spill Wednesday morning from a state trooper that noticed the leak coming from a semi as the big rig was driving down Highway 158.

The trooper pulled the semi over and called for emergency crews. A part of Highway 158 near Highway 385 had to be shut down while crews repaired the leak.

No one was hurt.
