The Union Pacific train went off the tracks about 60 miles west of Baton Rouge Sunday afternoon, and the rail company says one of the cars was leaking oil and another sodium hydroxide. Sodium hydroxide can cause injuries or even death if it’s inhaled or touches the skin.

Police say the leaks have been contained.
