Hydrofluoric acid?
Mind you that wouldn't be transported in great big lorries as it's a bit too dangerous. Plus it dissolves metal. And most other things.

Unless of course the tanker was powered by dilythium crystals
at which point the tanker rupturing would've caused an unstable warpcore breach and would've taken out the entire road as well.

*national typing bollocks day*

Unsure if it was Hydrofluoric, I think it was something else.

I believe that HF
is best only kept in certain polymer containers and most certainly wouldn't be carried by the tanker load. Could be fluorosulphuric acid.

Besides, HF doesn't really burn flesh. The molecules are so small that they diffuse through and attack the bone.

oleum? (edit: sort of dehydrated sulphuric acid)
tis sort of ok unless it gets hold of too much water, if I recall correctly (and indeed I might not).

More likely some chemical that reacts with water to make a strong acid
So it'll be fine in the tanker and on dry stuff, but burn right through anything damp.
Though from what I remember HCl is a gas, so wouldn't be transported by tanker, and the same is probably true for HF
