The accident involved a train running east-west and another running north-south, and took place at about 2:15 this morning. Six cars jumped the tracks, including three carrying carrying ferric or ferric chloride and hot asphalt.
One train hit the 10 freeway, causing it to close down for a few hours between Pepper Avenue to the 215 Freeway.
Officials didn't find any leaks in the cars carrying ferric and asphalt, but Colton High School and Woodrow Wilson Elementary are closed for the day as a precaution.
