The substance you see above is hot asphalt, which, as we reported yesterday, was leaked from a tanker tank on U.S. 82 from El Dorado to Magnolia. The full details of that leakage are in today’s edition of the Banner-News, but in the meantime, a Banner-News Facebook friend, Cindy Whitten Lewis, shared with us these photos.
Lewis says she was driving behind the leaking truck and now has an asphalt-dotted paint job on her car, as seen in the photos below. (Lewis submitted several other photos, as well – we’ve posted only a few of them here.)
If you’d like to read more about the matter, visit the Banner-News Facebook page to read Lewis’ story, which appears in the comments under our post about the asphalt leak: http://www.facebook.com/BannerNewsMagnolia?ref=ts (Be sure to “like” us while you’re there!)
