1998 Dodge Ram

Everything was fine and no signs of trouble until trying to start vehicle (1998 v8 dodge ram 1500) after driving it to work. Truck cranked but would not kick over. After looking under hood battery was leaning on radiator and was leaking a little and had slight crack and was low on water. Car would not jump start either. Replaced battery, still would not start or jump start. It was at night time so I could not see any other problems yet. What should I look for that might be a problem before having it towed to a shop? It's parked in a lot where I work. Truck cranks ok, lights work, etc but will not turn over and start. Again no signs of any trouble whatsoever before this. Thanks, phil
