DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: We want to update you on the situation that's taking place in Chicago. Folks that were evacuated because of this overturned tanker truck earlier this morning, they're being allowed to return to homes and offices. This truck overturned and spilled a chemical that the fire department believes is a chemical that's used in the production of rubber products. It's not the kind of thing you want to breathe in, so they evacuated the area. They also shut down commuter trains and they also shut down the Dan Ryan Expressway.

All in all a messy morning, a messy Wednesday morning in Chicago. It looks like they're getting a handle on it. So far no injuries. Even the truck driver is going to be OK.

LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: Now tell them what the chemical is.

KAGAN: No, you have to say it.

HARRIS: Azodicarbonamide.

KAGAN: As I said, used in the production of rubber products. Easy for you to say.

HARRIS: There you go.
