DETROIT (AP) — A train carrying hazardous materials derailed Sunday inside the tunnel between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, but officials said there were no leaks.

Twenty cars from the Canadian Pacific train jumped the track about 12:15 p.m. while entering the United States under the Detroit River, television station WKBD reported.

Four were carrying acid but they were intact, said Frank Peters, a Canadian Pacific official.

Workers were expected to take until Monday morning to get the cars back on track and reopen the tunnel, Peters said.
