We're assuming this happened in Illinois, having typed both "Hope Township" and "Lostant" into Google. Regardless, somewhere that is probably in the Land of Lincoln, a pickup carrying a vinegar-like dye dumped a whole mess of it along a major artery, coloring many vehicles blue and bringing out the Hazmat teams. We would suggest not trying to use the substance on your eyes if they happen to be brown and you want to change the color. That would really, really sting, and they make contact lenses for that sort of thing now.
