TRAIN DERAILS IN WILLIAMS COUNTY

The Williams County Sheriff’s Office reports that a train derailed Wednes­day after­noon just before 2:30 between County Roads 8 and 9.

The sheriff’s office con­firms that the Nor­folk South­ern train was not car­ry­ing any haz­ardous mate­ri­als and there were no injuries.

The derail­ment occured at the same place where another Nor­folk South­ern train left the tracks in April of 2010, when 24 homes were evac­u­ated due to leak­ing chem­i­cals.

Inves­ti­ga­tors say Wednesday’s mishap was pos­si­bly caused by strong straight line winds.
