Concerns are being raised after a car crashed into the Lake County Government Center's cafeteria last week, raising a cloud of dust which potentially contained asbestos. Workers at the Crown Point, Indiana facility quickly hung up plastic sheeting to seal off the area. According to reports, the ceiling tiles in the area probably contain asbestos, which could have gotten into the air following the crash.
Even in dust form, asbestos can lead to the development of the deadly cancer mesothelioma. While the ceiling tiles may not even have been damaged, the seriousness of the reaction underscores the danger that asbestos inhalation poses.
