EL PASO - A chemical that leaked out of a tractor trailer last night in Horizon City was toxic.

El Paso County Sheriff's Deputies say the truck was being worked on when the driver noticed the leak. We're told she was transporting dozens of 55-gallon drums containing a corrosive and toxic chemical so she called 911. The Hazmat team responded, and four mechanics had to be decontaminated, but they were released on scene.

We're told the spill has been cleared.
