More details are being released on a tanker truck rollover and spill that closed Interstate 80 between Annawan and Atkinson for most of the day. We now have a name for not only the driver of the truck but also the chemical that was spilled. State Police Trooper Jason Wilson says 44-year old Thomas Geary of Frankfort, Illinois has been ticketed for Improper Lane Usage after his semi went off the road and rolled into a ditch just before 6 yesterday morning. A small spill occurred from the tanker containing the chemical Toluene, a solvent used to dissolve paints and also used as an octane booster in gasoline. A HazMat team was called in to clean up the spill. In addition to being ticketed, Geary was taken to Hammond-Henry Hospital in Geneseo with what's being described as non-life threatening injuries.
