Little Info Still About Driver Who Triggered Derailment

As Norfolk Southern returns to normal operations following a derailment last Thursday in Swanton, Ohio, on its busy Chicago Line, authorities continue to investigate what contributed to the derailment.

Authorities have not identified the driver of a vehicle left on the tracks that was struck by a westbound stack train which triggered the derailment.

Police have not said if the owner of the vehicle was the driver who left the vehicle on the tracks and fled the scene and have said little about the circumstances of how the vehicle got onto the tracks.

No injuries were reported in the derailment, which sent two locomotives and 14 cars off the rails.

One track was reopened early Saturday morning and the second track opened late Saturday morning.
