20 miles northeast of Los Angeles, four cars of a freight train jumped ship track at about 3:30 a.m. this morning. No one was hurt or was affected by this delay. An unknown substance was leaking from the train so the fire department's hazardous materials squad was dispatched to the scene as well as police who are investigating the cause.
