    A UPS spokesperson told Patch in a statement, "UPS is committed to safely transporting hazardous materials. We are investigating the situation and working with local authorities."

    What a load of crap.
    Package probably busted and became leaky after some preloader hastily dropped it on the floor in a desperate effort to keep up with his 5 car pull.
    UPS is only committed to one thing and that's cramming as many packages down the belt in a short a time as possible in pursuit of the almighty dollar.
