Police and Hazardous Materials crews are heading to the scene of a hydrochloric acid spill in southwest Oklahoma City that has injured at least one person.

Authorities have closed down SW 15th St. from Agnew to May Ave. while emergency crews work the scene.

No evacuations have been ordered at this time. Police tell News 9 the leak stems from a rail car in the area. It is unclear how the victim came in contact with the acid. That person’s identity and condition has not been released.

Police have not said how long they expect the road to remain closed.
