Train car leak shuts down city streets

January 17, 2011 4:13:06 AM PST
Roads were closed for a hazmat situation in Downtown Raleigh overnight.

Police said early Monday morning someone noticed a chemical leaking from a train car on the tracks behind Seaboard shopping center in the area of Halifax Street and Peace Street.

After a hazardous materials response by the fire department, crews decided the chemical was a food additive and not necessarily toxic in small amounts.

Roads have reopened and the scene has cleared.
