Hundreds of gallons of red mulch pigment spill on High Point streets

HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Hundreds of gallons of red mulch pigment spilled out onto High Point streets Wednesday afternoon.

Most of the pigment spilled out on Brentwood Street and Townsend Avenue.

The pigment is not hazardous, according to Standard Colors.

For cars affected by the spill, a car wash should remove the pigment.

The driver of the truck was not a Standard Colors employee.
