No Injuries in CSX Derailment in Wellington

No injuries were reported in an early Monday morning derailment of a CSX manifest freight in Wellington on the Greenwich Subdivision.

The derailment was reported at 6 a.m. and for nearly two hours authorities had Ohio Routes 58 and 18 closed in town.

CSX said 22 cars and all three locomotives of the eastbound train derailed. The train had 89 loads, most of which was produce and building materials. There were 28 empties.

An online report identified the train as Q590 and many of the cars were Union Pacific reefer cars.

CSX said no hazardous materials were being carried by the train.

The derailment occurred near the intersection of Magyar and Wheeling streets, and also blocked the tracks of the Hartland Subdivision of the Wheeling & Lake Erie.

Fire broke out in at least one of the derailed cars and authorities said some diesel fuel was spilled.
