    QUITMAN, Ark. (KTHV) - A tanker truck that sprang a leak caused some problems in Quitman.

    According to Sherry Davis from Quitman City Hall, the tanker truck was carrying some sort of waste product mixed with lime. It began leaking the liquid while it was traveling though the city Friday afternoon, and while it wasn't oil, Davis did describe the substance as "greasy".

    She said the spill caused some cars to slide, but there were no wrecks or injuries.

    While most of the substance is off of the road now, Davis said a cleanup crew was on the way to take care of the rest.
