No Leaks In Train Derailment
A freight train that derailed Sunday morning in Stockton didn’t leak any hazardous materials.
Early police reports from the scene indicated that one of the derailed cars was leaking a liquid. The placard on the car said it was carrying up to 20,000 gallons of either hydrochloric acid or muriatic acid.
But according to Greg Renick of the state Office of Emergency Services nothing spilled from the wreckage. It is still unknown what caused the derailment. No one was injured in the wreck.
Most of the mile-long train derailed and the cars were overturned. Police received a call reporting the leak at 9:30 a.m. yesterday morning. According to Renick the all clear was given shortly after 1 p.m. and the scene was turned over to Union Pacific Railroad.
