While on the highway on June 11 between Fengdu (a Yangtze River town) and Chongqing (the largest city in China) we were held up for about 1-2 hours because a truck carrying hazardous materials skidded off the highway, presumably from either rain-slick roads or the driver falling asleep and had rolled over into the center barrier. We watched from about 50-100 feet away as they sprayed water on it (to keep it cool & not explode?) and used 2 cranes to lift it up and onto a flatbed tow-away truck.
Just so that my pictures aren’t exclusive they also had photographers on-site.
It was an interesting situation and a not uncommon China experience to be held up on the highway for hours.
