The CSX train had three locomotives and 175 total cars, including 94 loaded cars carrying mixed freight, and 81 empties. One derailed car is leaking sodium hydroxide, which is used to produce various household products including paper, soap and detergents.

We are grateful for the swift response from Washington D.C. first responders and other agencies. CSX is working closely with them on this incident.
