Sulphuric acid on Prague streets

For the second time in several days a street in Prague was contaminated by sulphuric acid. More than a thousand liters of this dangerous chemical spilled from transport barrels loaded on a truck.

The accident happened in Kutnohorska street in the east of Prague on Saturday night. The fire fighters had to neutralize the chemical with lime. Similar accident happened in Prague-Hostivar last Thursday. The two accidents were caused by the same company that transports the chemical.

Prague’s fire fighters had to intervene once more yesterday. An unknown substance made a large mark on the Vltava river near Charles Bridge. It was probably oil. The source of the leakage is not known yet.
